Northwest Missouri State University's Phi Delta Theta fraternity will host its annual Easter egg hunt to benefit the ALS Association.

The event will be 1 p.m. Sunday, March 31, in Beal Park, located at Seventh and Laura streets. The event is free and open to the public.

The event will include a raffle, face-painting and music. All proceeds go to the fraternity’s philanthropy, ALS Association, to fight Lou Gehrig's Disease.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease after the baseball great who died from ALS, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. For more information about ALS, go to http://www.alsa.org/.
