Angel Warriors holding Easter egg hunt for special-needs individuals

By NEAL WAGNER / Managing Editor

ALABASTER – The Angel Warriors Foundation will continue its outreach to the local special-needs community in mid-April by hosting a free Easter event at Larry Simmons Stadium.

The Angel Warriors Foundation, a nonprofit organization in Alabaster aiming to help nurture individuals with special needs and multiple disabilities, will host its first Special-needs Eggstravaganza on Saturday, April 15, from 2-4 p.m. on the stadium’s football field.

The event is open to local special-needs individuals and their immediate family members, and will feature a visit from the Easter Bunny, an egg hunt, vendors and other fun events throughout the afternoon.

In addition to the Angel Warriors Foundation, the event will be sponsored by Frios Gourmet Pops, Kona Ice and Vic Smith CPA.

The event is free, but participants are asked to RSVP on the Foundation’s website at Angelwarriorsfoundation.org.

This will mark the third major event for the Angel Warriors Foundation after forming in 2016.

In December 2016, the Foundation held a sensory-friendly Christmas event for the special-needs community, and held a fundraiser gala earlier this month.

The Foundation is using the money raised from the gala’s silent auction and ticket sales to support programs such as a special-needs playground in Alabaster, a miracle field and special-needs summer camp and different activities held throughout the year.
