Monday, April 24, 2017

The 17th annual Bunny Hop! event to benefit Chambliss Center for Children will be held on Friday, May 5.  The family-friendly fundraiser will be held in the First Tennessee Pavilion from 6-8:30 p.m.

"Parents can enjoy an evening with friends and festivities while their kids take advantage of the numerous activities for children. All ages are welcome and encouraged to attend, including grandparents and adults without children," officials said.
 
“As busy parents ourselves, we understand the importance of having quality early childhood education and care for children,” said Dr. Tonia and Will Cox, who, along with Mark Hite are chairing this year’s Bunny Hop! “This event provides a fun atmosphere for people to learn more about what Chambliss Center for Children is providing for families in this community.  We are excitedly planning for an even bigger event this year, as we share the mission of the Chambliss Center for Children.”
 
Activities will include a wide range of arts and crafts; a bunny petting station; a balloon artist; a magician; a "sports zone" set with a putting green, basketball nets, lots of balls, and corn hole; glitter tattoos and more.  For the older children, there will be inflatables, Chattanooga Aerials, and a photo booth station. All children in attendance will receive a Peter Rabbit coloring book to take home.
 
Adults will enjoy live music, a silent auction, and a buffet dinner catered by Events with Taste.  Food provided for the children will include Chick-fil-A chicken nuggets, macaroni and cheese from The Feed Co., fruit and carrots from Food City, chips, and cupcakes.

Parking is free, and the event entrance is off of Carter Street, where attendees can sign in and pay if reservations were not pre-paid. Admission is $35 for adults and $15 for children. Little ones under the age of 2 are free. A family package, which includes two adults and up to four children, is $100. Prices will increase after April 25.
