Galloway Park in Coquitlam, BC was a sea of chocolate eggs on April 3, thanks to the efforts of Rebecca Permack of Royal LePage West Real Estate Services Ltd. Her fifth Annual Burke Mountain Community Easter Egg Hunt saw more than 1,200 children scrambling to collect 30,000 chocolate eggs, all in support of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation. A total of $8,001 was raised for local shelter, Tri-City Transitions.

The day also featured a live band, food trucks, complimentary Starbucks coffee, a 50/50 draw and visits from the local fire truck and Easter bunny.

“It was an amazing day,” said Permack. “I was overwhelmed with the spirit of our volunteer team, our generous sponsors, and of course, with the number of families who spent their day with us in support of a very important cause.”
