Cardinal Egg Hunt a Hit!
April 2, 2010
The University of Louisville Student-Athlete Advisory Committee hosted the Cardinal Egg Hunt Saturday March 27, which was a hit with kids and student-athletes alike. Families were invited to come out and join the Cardinals for an egg hunt as well as games and activities prior to the Louisville Softball game.
The event was the spring community service project for the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC). The SAAC helped organized the event and recruited their teammates to come out and volunteer. Over 75 student-athletes assisted with the egg hunt and games.
The Cardinal Bird and cheerleaders kicked off the egg hunt at the Softball field and then families were invited to Cardinal Park to participate in a variety of activities, including cookie decorating, hula hoops, the bunny hop relay, corn hole, tee ball challenge, and the ever popular inflatable jumping castle. Egg hunt prizes included Cardinal gear, season tickets, toys, and candy.
"This was a great event for student-athletes and the community. Our student-athletes have a rich tradition of being active in the community, and this was a great chance to bring the community to campus and thank them for their support of Cardinal Athletics. At times I wasn't sure if the student-athletes or kids were having a better time and had to remind the student-athletes to share with the kids!" remarked Amy Seng, Assistant Director of Student-Athlete Development and co-organizer of the event.
Kids were able to redeem their eggs for various prizes, including UofL gear, toys, season tickets, candy, and more
Louisville Athletics and the student-athletes would like to thank all of those who came out to the Cardinal Egg Hunt as well Schiller's Fitness & Cycling, Puccini's, the Louisville Bats, and Penn Station for their donations.
