The American Cancer Society and the Easter Bunny are partnering this spring to “egg” houses in the Auburn-Opelika area to support the fight against cancer.
On April 11, the night before Easter, American Cancer Society volunteers will deliver plastic, candy-filled eggs to homes that participate in the Egg My House fundraiser. 
All proceeds benefit Relay For Life of Auburn University, an annual charity walk honoring people who have been affected by cancer.
“We’re so excited to bring this event to the community for the first time,” said Kalyn Frederick, community development manager with the American Cancer Society. “What’s more fun than surprising kids with a yard full of Easter eggs while giving back to our friends and neighbors?”
Residents can purchase 40 eggs for $20, 80 eggs for $40 or 120 eggs for $80 by emailing Kalyn.Frederick@Cancer.org. Orders must be placed by March 31 to ensure delivery.
Contact Frederick at Kalyn.Frederick@Cancer.org for more details about how to get involved.
