Maclovio Perez meets with Alana Manrow and Matt Weischwill as they discuss the upcoming Beeping Eggstravaganza for the Blind.

The event, sponsored by the South Texas Lighthouse for the Blind and the Corpus Christi Police Departement Bomb, will be held from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. April 13 at Whataburger Field.

It’s a special Easter Egg hunt for children who are blind or visually impaired and their family members on the Saturday prior to Easter weekend.

Thanks to the CCPD Bomb Squad, 200 large, brightly colored Easter eggs that beep will be present so that the participants can hunt for the eggs using their sense of hearing, rather than sight.

Additionally, other activities will include a petting zoo, pony rides, face painting, moonwalks, crafts and much, much more.

All proceeds from Beeping Eggstravaganza go straight to the event, ensuring that deserving families receive a very unique and memorable experience at no cost to them.

To participate or make a donation, contact Alana at 361-693-6183.
