THE sun smiled on proceedings as over 400 families enjoyed a fun-filled afternoon at The Malton Hotel’s Charity Bunny Hop tea party last Sunday.
TV3 presenters Colette Fitzpatrick and Aisling O’Loughlin and their families were among those enjoying the action-packed event, organised in aid of Down Syndrome Kerry.
The Easter-themed family day included an animal road show, bouncy castle, magic show, puppet show, face painting, balloon modelling and a children’s dance.
Of course, the Easter Bunny was the guest of honour and led the thrilling Easter egg hunt. The Easter Bunny was joined by numerous friends including Minnie and Mickey Mouse, Buzz Lightyear and Woody to name but a few.
In addition to the entertainment and activities, The Malton’s executive head chef, Will Fitzgerald, created a tempting afternoon tea featuring a delicious array of freshly baked miniature cakes, pastries, and breads, as well as dainty finger sandwiches, along with a “cake pop” creation station for little ones and a decorating demonstration hosted by The Malton’s head pastry chef. The children also enjoyed a pop-up sweet shop and each guest departed with a Malton goodie bag.
The event was hosted by the Scally family and all profits from the event will be donated to Down Syndrome Kerry, a non-government funded charity, which relies on fundraising events to provide vital services in Kerry.
