A first-grade teacher in Newberg, Rainey is fighting breast cancer

This year's Egg Hunt For Hope will be held on Saturday, April 8, at Sherwood High School's track and field. Fun and festivities will start around 12:30 p.m. with opening ceremonies at 1 p.m. before the egg hunts start at 1:30 p.m.

Lorie Rainey, a Sherwood resident, wife, mother, teacher and now breast cancer fighter, was named this year's recipient for the 11th Annual McCabe Real Estate Group's Benefit Egg Hunt For Hope.

Last September, Lorie began the school year with a new teaching opportunity, joining the first grade team in Newberg at Mabel Rush Elementary. However, sadly only a few weeks into the new school year, she had to stop teaching to focus on her health.

On Feb. 7, she finished her last round of chemotherapy and in March she will be having surgery followed by five weeks of daily radiation treatments. 

Cost for the benefit egg hunt is only $3 per participant. Rain or shine, there will be four egg hunts: one for the age group of 0-2 years, 3 years old through kindergarten, first through fifth grade and a hunt for the adults too! Back by popular demand is Scott Tom, a radio personality from 106.7 The Eagle, who will act as both DJ and emcee for this year's event.

To raise money for Lorie, sweets and beverages will be donated by Sherwood businesses, The Hungry Hero Desserts Company and Dutch Brothers.

You can also purchase drawing tickets for a chance to win one of many great donated items or you can bid on the higher priced items. And don't forget to bring your camera to get pictures taken with the Easter Bunny!
