CMEE “Egg-A-Palooza” Fundraiser  

The Children’s Museum of the East End (CMEE) presents “Egg-A-Palooza.” Modeled after its popular Gingerbread House at Home Fundraiser, “Egg-A-Palooza” allows families to support the museum’s Covid-19 response efforts while safely enjoying one of the museum’s longstanding community events, the Mad Hatter Egg Hunt.

“When I realized that we’d have to cancel the Mad Hatter Egg Hunt this year, I don’t know who was more disappointed . . . me or my boys,” said Steve Long, CMEE’s president. “I’m grateful that the museum staff continues to think up innovative ideas that allow families to enjoy CMEE while allowing us to serve the East End’s most vulnerable.”

Beginning today, Friday, March 12, families can purchase and pick up take-home egg hunt kits. Each kit includes 12 eggs and is filled with a spring coloring activity, treats, and prizes, including a coupon for a complimentary donut from Grindstone Donuts in Sag Harbor.

“While this year hasn’t been all it’s been cracked up to be, we couldn’t be more egg-cited about this event,” joked Liz Bard, the museum’s director of education. “And, with Grindstone on board, do-nut miss your opportunity to take home a kit of your own!”

Kits begin at $30 with delivery and private party options available. All money raised during “Egg-A-Palooza” will directly benefit the more than 70 families served by the museum’s food pantry. Launched in response the economic hardship brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, CMEE’s Food 2 Play initiative has provided resources to these families.
