The 11th annual Northeast Cobb Community Egg Drop, sponsored by Superior Plumbing and C&S Paving, will be April 11 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Sprayberry High School's football field and stadium area.
The event will feature a helicopter dropping thousands of eggs onto the field to kick-off the various egg hunts. There will be 90,000-plus eggs and candy. There will also be food, games, a DJ and other activities.
The funds raised from the Egg Drop go to support both the Shop with a Yellow Jacket and the Shop with a Longhorn programs for Sprayberry and Kell High Schools. Last year more than $14,000 went right back into the community from the event.
