Lakeview Regional Medical Center is proud to announce that it will host the Kids’ Town EGGStravaganza on “the Green” on Sunday, March 17th from 11am until 3pm. The event, taking place adjacent the pond facing the hospital, will feature three different age-level Easter egg hunts, an egg toss, arts and crafts tents, inflatables, magic acts, and dance and music performances; but the highlight of the day is the Rubber Duck Regatta Race, for which only 2000 $5 duck entries will be sold. The first lucky duck to cross the finish line will win $500, and the next 5 ducks will win $100 each. Admission is just $1 per person, under 3 is free. All proceeds from the event benefit Tammany Trace Kids’ Town.
“We are excited to host this fun, family event,” states Laurie Spurlin, LRMC Assistant Director of Business Development & Volunteers. “The Tammany Trace Foundation shares our commitment to the children of this community, and our combined efforts will assist in continuing to enhance our quality of life in St. Tammany.” The Tammany Trace Foundation is the 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is the inspiration behind the special events and fundraisers that help support numerous projects on the trace. KIDS Konnection Playground, a place for children of all abilities to play, is a project of the Tammany Trace Foundation. The Lakeview Regional EGGStravaganza event will help fund the next project—Tammany Trace Kids’ Town at KIDS Konnection Playground—a child size town that will feel just like a grown up town with a roadway for bikes and other tyke-size vehicles, exercise and recreational areas, and fun ways to learn and play simultaneously. “In the immortal words of Dr. Seuss, ‘A person’s just a person, no matter how small’,” states Tony Lemon, Tammany Trace Foundation Vice President. “This project is going to bring many smiles to the children of St. Tammany Parish.”
