The Beeping Egg Hunt is a community event for the whole family to enjoy. All children will be able to participate in the Hunt. Blindfolds will be given to sighted children, and they, like their vision-impaired counterparts, will get to experience what it would be like to hunt eggs without their vision. Alongside the hunting grounds the event will host areas to hit beeping baseballs, a petting zoo, face painting and bounce houses.

The community event is brought to Lubbock by Alström Angels, a Lubbock-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping children diagnosed with Alström Syndrome. Alström Syndrome is a genetic disease that affects children with complete blindness, deafness, type 2 diabetes, kidney and liver failure, congestive heart failure and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. "Because childhood blindness is such a big part of Alström Syndrome, the Beeping Egg Hunt is a great way for us to raise awareness for all blind and vision impaired children," said Cassie Johnston, co-founder and executive director of Alström Angels.

The Beeping Egg Hunt will be held on Sunday, March 25, 2018 at 4ore Golf from 1 p.m. - 4 p.m. and is open to the general public. The event will host continuous egg hunts throughout the afternoon, allowing attendees to come and go at their leisure. There is no admission charge to attend the Beeping Egg Hunt and related activities.
