Patients, Families Enjoy Easter Bunny Visit
Sunday April 16th, 2017
On Easter Sunday, our patients aboard the S.S. La Rabida and their families enjoyed a special visit from the Easter Bunny who hopped from cabin to cabin to deliver custom gift baskets.
The Easter Bunny and Mrs. Bunny, Trustee Allen Kutchins and his wife Genie, hopped down to La Rabida Sunday morning to distribute beautiful Easter baskets, greet patients and families and spread springtime cheer. The Kutchinses are longtime supporters of La Rabida and this is their seventh year participating in the Easter festivities here.
Patients wore colorful clothing (mostly donated from generous La Rabida supporters) and received special baskets stuffed with age-appropriate toys and books donated by Dawn Gerhard and her daughter, as well as Chubb Insurance.
Thank you to our wonderful donors who made this holiday special for our the kids and families of La Rabida.
The festivities were covered by ABC, NBC, CBS, WGN, WBBM Radio and the Hyde Park Herald. See the stories below:
