Dozens of families attend 15 Annual Easter Egg Hunt at Glory Field

The 15th Annual Easter Egg Hunt was held at Glory Field on Saturday, March 24. It was hosted by the Student Engagement and Leadership Center as well as Alpha XI Delta, Theta Chi, and the National Society of Leadership and Success.

Dozens of children and their parents attended enjoying free games, jumping balloons, food, and of course lots of candy and Easter eggs.

The Easter Bunny even showed up to the event to take pictures with the children.

The event was open to the public. Many of the families in attendance were members of the UTEP faculty and staff.

“Honestly, I’ve been in the chapter for four years now and this is the biggest turnout I’ve seen,” said Isabel Acevedo, president of the UTEP Alpha Xi Delta chapter.

This is the first year that UTEP student Opal Siqueiros attended the Easter egg hunt. Siquerios thought the event was cute for her tthree-year-olddaughter Scarlett.

“I saw the event on Facebook and I thought, ‘I have a little one she’ll enjoy it,” she said.

Preparations for the Easter Egg Hunt started back in January, said Acevedo, but purchasing food, drinks, and filling the eggs with candy took about three weeks.

“It’s a really great opportunity for [the organizations] to give back to the community and interact with the kids. It’s something I always look forward too just because I know that it makes a lot of the kids happy,” said Acevedo.
