The Easter Bunny and Mrs. Bunny, Trustee Allen Kutchins and his wife Genie, hopped down to La Rabida this morning to distribute custom Easter baskets, greet patients and families and spread Springtime cheer. This is Bunny Kutchins’ fourth year participating in the Easter festivities at La Rabida. “We just love the hospital and the kids,” said Kutchins.
Patients wore colorful clothing (mostly donated from generous La Rabida supporters) and received special baskets handmade for them, taking their age, developmental level and diagnosis into account.
Anthony Ramsey and his family donated 20 Easter baskets, marking their second year of helping make Easter Sunday special. “I just love to see the smiles on the kids' faces when they meet the Easter Bunny and see their baskets,” said Ramsey. “I want the kids to know that someone is thinking about them.”
Chanel, 7, Bunny Kutchins’ self-appointed helper for the morning, tagged along with the Bunny Crew and helped distribute baskets to other patients.
