Annual Children's Easter party at the Poverello House
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- The Easter Bunny is already starting to make his rounds here in the Valley. Saturday, that included a trip to Fresno's Poverello House.
The Poverello's Amici Guild hosted its annual Children's Easter Party on Saturday, complete with fun, games, and a visit from the top rabbit.
The guild raises money specifically for celebrations like this, but this year -- they got help from some young children.
"This year we had a group of four 3rd graders who donated the money to benefit this party. They raised funds by doing yard sales and recycling and all sorts of pennies for pov -- and they generated just under $2,400 for this event," said Kathryn Weakland with the Poverello House.
