mixblog - EasterEgg 4

The Mil Jeanne Flowers & Axcenz Easter Eggstravaganza wrapped up with a bang Friday with a grand finale fit for a kid at gramma's house. On the line was a giant chocolate Easter bunny from Morden's Chocolates plus a gift card for an Easter arrangment, products from the new Tea Forte line they carry and some gourmet village goodies. We had our 12 contestants (collected from Facebook and on-air) down at Mil Jeanne's to pick colourful eggs from a basket ... And each colour corresponded to a prize.
