‘Bunny Hop’ Easter Brunch and dance party
On Sunday, April 21, the Garage on Beck Street hosts Mr. Jesse Walker’s 9th Annual ‘Bunny Hop’, presented by SLUG Magazine. This Easter Sunday celebration includes a brunch buffet, prizes, and award winning local deejays playing only vinyl records from brunch to sunset. Guests may also hunt for eggs, enjoy surprise guest artists, and an appearance by the real Easter Bunny.
Funds raised benefit the International Rescue Committee in Salt Lake City and the refugees they serve, supporting important programs helping refugees positively integrate into our community.
The day-long ‘hop’, which attracts an alternative crowd ranging in age and identity carries a tradition of community interaction and goodwill, helping attendees release a healthy dose of spring fever while making a positive social impact.
About the Egg Hunt and Prizes:
Hundreds of eggs which can be found throughout the day are stuffed with candy and prizes. A large, grand prize (TBD) will be awarded to the crowd favorite for Easter Flair Spirit.
The IRC and the United States have a long history of warmly welcoming the world’s most persecuted people. Generous supporters around the world have pledged their time and resources to helping refugees start anew. The minute these brave individuals step off the plane in Salt Lake City, IRC staff and volunteers are there to help them on the final leg of their journey.
Location: The Garage, 1199 Beck St., SLC
Event Hours: 11 a.m. to Sunset
Donation: $15 per person at the door; pre-sale available at http://www.24tix.com
