City Park and Recreation thanked Jimmy and Debbie Filipowicz and Steel Etc. in the media to make this Easter celebration possible for the 11th year with their contribution.
Filipowiczes has been sponsoring the event for 11 years since preventing the event from being canceled due to lack of funding in 2011.
“We are fortunate to have a community that cares about events like these, and we appreciate businesses like Steel Etc., and owners Jimmy and Debbie Filipowicz,” Park and Recreation Manager Patty Rearden said in a statement. “They graciously support all Easter Egg Hunt expenses, but only a small part of their ongoing support and humanitarian efforts.”
“I have a soft heart when it comes to children and we want to see this annual tradition continue,” Filipowicz said in a statement. “The community has been good to our business and we want to give back.”
Cascade Future Farmers of America has provided time for egg-laying to be used for hunting.
