Children and teenagers at KidsPeace’s Orefield, Pa., campus will have some sweet Easter surprises this year thanks to the generosity of the Baltimore Orioles.


The Orioles donated 2,000 plastic Easter eggs filled with candy that will be tucked into baskets Sunday and hidden around campus for children in the residential program and the hospital.


KidsPeace has a relationship with the Orioles thanks to the generosity of manager Buck Showalter, and his wife Angela, who are avid supporters of the organization’s mission “to give hope, help and healing to children, families and communities.”


Other companies that contributed Easter candy to KidsPeace this year include Just Born in Bethlehem and a food bank in the Harrisburg area.

On March 31, KidsPeace turned the historic Lehigh Valley Trust Building into Vault 634 for an evening of refreshments, entertainment and fundraising. 

  

The speakeasy event featured Lehigh Valley pianist Dave Roth and West Coast standard singer Callie Cardamon performing hits of the 1920’s. Cardamon volunteers for TeenCentral.Net and wrote the ballad, “Love is on the Way,” for KidsPeace. 

  

The crowd of approximately 125 people enjoyed food prepared by Gala Gourmet Catering and had the opportunity for a souvenir picture. The event raised more than $27,000.
