"As busy parents ourselves, we understand the importance of having quality early childhood education and care for children," said Dr. Tonia and Will Cox, co-chairs for this year's Bunny Hop! "This event provides a fun atmosphere for people to learn more about what Chambliss Center for Children is providing for families in this community."
Activities will include arts and crafts, a bunny petting station, a balloon artist, face painting, a magician, inflatables, a photo booth, a sports zone and the Chattanooga Aerials. All children in attendance will receive a "Peter Rabbit" coloring book to take home.
Adults will enjoy live music, a silent auction, and a buffet dinner catered by Events with Taste. Food provided for the children will include Zaxby's chicken fingers, macaroni & cheese from 1885 Grill and treats from other local businesses. Parking is free, and the event entrance is off of Carter Street, where attendees can sign in and pay if reservations were not pre-paid.
Admission is $40 for adults and $20 for children. Little ones age 2 and under are free. A family package, which includes two adults and up to four children, is $125. Reservations are requested ahead of time. To make a reservation, visit www.bunny-hop.org.
The Chambliss Center for Children is a local nonprofit organization that has been caring for this community's children 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for 144 years. The mission of the agency is to preserve family unity and to help prevent the dependency, neglect, abuse and delinquency of children by responding to the community’s child care needs. This is done by providing affordable, accessible and quality care for over 650 children every day through an Early Childhood Education and Extended Child Care Program, as well as a Residential Program, which recruits and trains foster families and has the region’s only group home for children in state custody. In addition to these two programs, the agency also manages five off-site childcare centers and educates and cares for the children of teachers in eleven Hamilton County Schools.
