St. Mary's Catholic Church youth fundraiser can bring the Easter Bunny to your house

The Easter Bunny will make a special visit to your house. It can happen any time from now to Saturday, April 3 – the day before Easter Sunday.

All you need to do it ask. The visit is a fundraiser by the St. Mary’s Catholic Church youth. Proceeds are used for summer camp.

The Bunny will hop to your house, deliver a goody bag and then you can take a photo of the Bunny with your family. All this for a $25 donation to the church youth group.

And, the Bunny’s range is to residences within a 10-mile radius of Bluffton.
