A little rain didn't stop the 11th McCabe Real Estate Group's Annual Benefit Egg Hunt for Hope from happening. Over $23,000 was raised for this year's recipient Lorie Rainey a local Sherwood resident battling breast cancer.
This year's benefit egg hunt was held Saturday, April 8, at Sherwood High School's track and field.
"The high school was the perfect venue as we had the covered stadium, better parking and being on the turf field, we didn't have to deal with any mud which was really nice and saved a lot of our plastic eggs from being destroyed" said Leslie McCabe, event chairwoman and founder.
The event wants to thank the city of Sherwood, the Sherwood School District and the Sherwood's Booster Club. By having the event this year at the high school's track and field, there were so many positives to this new location they feel it is why they raised more than their $20,000 goal for this family affected by cancer.
Over 50 sponsors participated in this year's event and over 25 volunteers served on the planning committee.
Shanan Mathison was this year's official event photographer, donating her services along with Sherwood's Dutch Bros. Coffee and Sherwood's The Hungry Hero Dessert Company were on site with their donated sweets and beverages to name just a few of the wonderful event supporters.
Over the past 10 years, The Egg Hunt for Hope has raised over $100,000 for local families affected by cancer. Founded in 2007 by Todd and Leslie McCabe, Sherwood residents and co-owners of Sherwood's real estate company, The McCabe Real Estate Group, the event has become a fun annual Sherwood tradition that brings the community together while doing good for a local family dealing with cancer.
