During the period of the Egg hunt there will be an online auction for the Eggs and the event will culminate in a Gala Black Tie Ball at the Four Seasons Hotel Dublin on the 23rd March where the top 30 Eggs will be auctioned live. This event will bring old and new together by uniting the tradition of the egg hunt with cutting edge technology and beautiful art, which will be a first for engaging mass participation in this way and on this scale.

We are so excited to be making high-end art accessible to all and we do hope you will take part in this truly unique event and help us to raise funds for the 300 babies nationwide currently under our wing.
