Mr. Easter Bunny Makes Early Visit to Calgary Charities

Posted: 4/2/2012

 

Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut's Easter Bunny delivers 100 chocolate Easter bunnies to the kids at lnn From the Cold and to Ronald McDonald House Southern Alberta

 

On Thursday April 5, 2012 the Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut Easter Bunny will make two very special visits to deliver 100 chocolate easter bunnies to children staying at Ronald McDonald House Southern Alberta and Inn From the Cold.

 

Our hearts go out to families who find themselves in unimaginably difficult situations, whether it be coping with the severe illness of a child or being without a place to live. We are happy to bring some lightness and fun into these families' lives," said Alana Antonelli, Marketing Manager of Cococo Chocolatiers Inc., the company that operates and supports a network of 32 Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut corporately-owned and dealer-owned stores throughout Canada and the US. "Ronald McDonald House Southern Alberta is a long-standing partner of ours and Inn from the Cold is our neighbour. It made sense to us that we be involved with both of these charities at Easter time." The public is also invited to meet Mr. Bunny at 11 Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut locations this weekend where he will be handing out chocolate treats for the kids. People can visit the company web site at www.bernardcallebaut.com to see his schedule.
