Miss teen contestant raises money for local charity

Local

It’s a bitterly cold Easter Sunday but that didn’t stop hundreds of kids from joining in on a national egg hunt. 

“My mom made me wear a scarf,” said four-year-old Joesph, as he ran for his next egg. “But I can get you some eggs too!” 

All Star Adventure hid over 12,000 Easter eggs throughout the arcade. 

“Usually, we have closer to 40,000 eggs but because of the cold weather we added an inside option for people to have some fun with this,” said All Star’s manager. “It’s a smaller space but the kids look like they’re still having fun.” 

Miss Kansas teen and a joining contestant, were also at the annual egg hunt but not for the treats. 

“I’m here to raise money for Wichita’s Ronald McDonald House,” said Miss Kansas Teen contestant, Lydia Sharpe. “My platform was involving premature babies and I saw that Ronald McDonald House is a big sponsor so, I started working with them a lot more.” 

Sharpe helped raise nearly $1,000 through a raffle for the cause. 

“I didn’t know how many kids were going to show up,” she said. “Just seeing all these kids out here having fun; it makes me happy.” 

Sharpe will compete for Miss Outstanding Teen this summer.
