2009 Beeper Egg Hunt San Francisco Chronicle article

This event is so much fun that we have two Beeper Egg Hunts annually! You can join the fun in Central Valley and in the Bay Area.

Children who are blind or visually impaired have the opportunity to take part in a traditional egg hunt adapted just for them, where specially-designed beeping eggs are placed throughout the grass for children to find by listening for their sound. The beeping eggs are then exchanged for candy-filled plastic eggs. The day is filled with crafts, music, food and fun for everyone!

Please join us for the 2016 Beeper Egg Hunts!

With similar missions and visions, the union between Junior Blind and Blind Babies Foundation is a natural fit and our combined strengths will ensure brighter futures for even more babies in need of our critical services.  To learn more, please visit www.juniorblind.org/bbf.
