Sheriff Dana Lawhorne and Deputy Valarie Wright arrive at Inova Alexandria Hospital with a basket full of stuff bunnies and candy.

Alexandria Sheriff Dana Lawhorne and members of his office accompanied the Easter Bunny, portrayed by Winchester Sheriff Leonard Millholland, to Inova Alexandria Hospital on Wednesday, March 27, for the Office’s annual visit.

Carrying a basket of stuffed bunnies adorned with hearts and the printed message “Some Bunny Loves Me,” Deputy Valarie Wright, Latoscha Pierce and Tiffany Searcy helped the Easter Bunny spread cheer to patients, visitors, staff and volunteers.

The Inova Alexandria Hospital bunny began in 2009 in this joint community service project sponsored by the Easter Bunny Foundation, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide a personal visit and a toy from the Easter Bunny during the week of Easter to children in hospitals.
