The Bendigo Club is bouncing into the spirit of Easter this year with a massive Easter Egg Hunt throughout the grounds and gardens of the venue.

From 10am on Easter Saturday morning, kids will be hopping mad with excitement as the Easter Bunny will have surrounded the area with an abundance of Easter eggs.

Costing only a gold coin donation for entry, The Bendigo Club is eggcited to announce that once again all money raised will be donated directly to Bendigo Health Foundation.

The foundation funds health projects that make a sincere difference to the lives of patients and their families.

Last year, more than 100 excited children and some just as excited parents joined in the massive egg hunt and this year promises to be even bigger with three different age groups, ensuring everyone receives a chance to find the elusive eggs.

Venue manager Michelle Robertson said The Bendigo Club was looking forward to assisting the foundation.

“As proud supporters of many community organisations and groups, we are rapt to be once again helping raise money for the Bendigo Health Foundation,” she said.

“They provide an excellent service to the region through their efforts and helping improve the medical facilities and patient care in the Bendigo region”.

Bendigo Health Foundation manager of fundraising and foundation Rachel Mason cannot wait for the hunt.

“I’ll have my very excited children with me and I look forward to seeing plenty of people in attendance,” she said.

“The Bendigo Health Foundation is very appreciative of the support as every dollar goes towards the continued improvement of our regional hospital services.”

In addition, the Bendigo Club will again be supporting the Good Friday Appeal by donating all proceeds from Friday night’s mega raffle to the appeal.
