Early Easter egg hunt on the hill benefits Kentucky vets, tornado victims

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Easter is early to the hill. The Hilltopper Hunt on WKU’s campus gave students an opportunity to win prizes while also supporting the Kentucky Veterans Brigade and those effected by the December tornado.

Students could give five dollars or donate food to hunt for some Easter eggs filled with raffle tickets and a chance to win anything. And they did not hold back on their prizes! Students walked away with anything from Apple airpods to a staycation right here in Bowling Green.

“Since they just recently opened their doors to the tornado victims of Bowling Green, so they’re not just serving the veteran community anymore, they are opening their doors to a much wider audience,” said Calleigh Powell, a public relations student and organizer of the event. “Therefore, they are needing more food donations, monetary donations, clothing items, all kinds of things.”
