Foundation seeks sponsors for annual Easter Egg Hunt Festival

BEDFORD – Ten thousand eggs will be ready for your little ones to gather up at this year’s Easter Egg Hunt Festival scheduled for 8:30 a.m.-noon Saturday, March 26, at the New Hampshire Sportsplex in Bedford.

This popular family fundraising event from the Our Promise To Nicholas Foundation, now in its eighth year, has become a favorite of the Hillsborough County residents and their children.

OPTN’s mission is to raise funds and mold partnerships to promote awareness, provide education and fund the development of research to fight a rare and fatal brain illness called Batten disease.

OPTN is seeking sponsors at all levels for this year’s egg hunt to join its contributing sponsors: the Sportsplex, Executive Health and Sports Center, Alkemy Partners, Catholic Medical Center, Bedford Ambulatory Surgical Center and Rothwangl Dental Care.

Through the support of corporate sponsorships, local businesses and community volunteers, last year’s event was attended by 1,200 guests who helped raise $27,500 for the foundation. Its goal this year is to raise $35,000.

The Easter Bunny is ready to roll with his 10,000 candy- and prize-filled eggs. For those not actively "hunting," there will be live entertainment by Jungle Jim of Boston and magic by B.J. Hickman. There will be princesses and Joey the Kangaroo from Launch Trampoline Park, bounce houses, games, a silent auction, a bake sale and a raffle for Easter baskets.

Tickets are $8 per person or $28 per family. By registering online at egghunt2016.eventbrite.com, you will be assured a speedy entry. Tickets will be sold at the door for $10 per person and $32 per family.

The Sportsplex is at 68 Technology Drive.

There are many ways in which you can make a difference, such as event exhibitors, advertisement opportunities and raffle basket donations. For more information, contact Lisa Kaveney, director of development, at lisakaveney@yahoo.com.

OPTN was founded by Chris and Heather Dainiak, of Bedford, in 2009 after their son Nicholas was diagnosed with a rare, fatal neurological brain disease called Batten. Nicholas’ parents promised him that they would work tirelessly to find a cure for this little-known disease.

Nicholas lost his battle to Batten on May 9, 2014, on his 11th birthday.
