Alabama Panhellenic Association hosts Easter egg hunt

By WVUA 23 News Reporter Audra Phillips

Hundreds of families gathered at the University of Alabama President’s Mansion on Sunday with a single goal in mind: Find as many Easter eggs as possible.

UA’s Panhellenic Association this year brought back their annual egg hunt, which was put on hold the past several years because of COVID-19 concerns, and children and their families were more than elated to once more spend an afternoon egg hunting.

“We have kids 12 and under from all around the Tuscaloosa community egg hunting,” said Association Director of Community Outreach Ines Martinand. “We’re having special guests and a snow cone truck and are celebrating Easter and Spring on such a beautiful day.”

More than 10,000 colorful eggs filled with candy, toys and surprises were up for grabs, and each egg was donated by one of UA’s sororities.

“I love seeing all the kids running after the eggs,” Martinand said. “It was funny to see them be so passionate about it. Being able to bring us back to our childhood through our Easter egg hunts is so much fun.”

This is one of many events the Panhellenic Association hosts throughout the year.

“We’re so blessed to go to an awesome university, and it’s really important to give back and provide a fun event for the Tuscaloosa community,” Martinand said.
