Proudly hosted by Ray White Mountain Creek, families are invited to a fun-filled morning of everything Easter!

Ray White Mountain Creek will be raffling a Ray White bike, a beach BBQ, a family pass to the NRL Sharks vs Cowboys game at Sunshine Coast Stadium, a basket full of Easter eggs plus heaps more.

I love events where the actual event raises money for charities and in this case, the very worthy Sunshine Coast charity, SunnyKids will be benefiting from the community Easter event.

Registration to the Great Mountain Creek Easter Egg Hunt is essential - please register online here.
A donation payable in cash or EFTPOS on the day:

$5 per child or
$10 per family of two or more and includes the Easter egg hunt, a hunting bag, face painting and the jumping castle.
