The American Egg Board continued its tradition of supporting the White House Easter Egg Roll by donating more than 14,000 hard-cooked and dyed eggs for this year’s event.

It also provided hats and aprons with the official White House Egg Roll logo to more than 1,200 volunteers.


The 33rd Commemorative Egg was presented to First Lady Michelle Obama on behalf of America’s egg farmers by Craig Willardson, chairman of the American Egg Board. This luminary-style egg was crafted by Broomfield, Colo., artist Laura Schiller. Carved using a high-speed drill, this large chicken egg shell features hand-made adornments reflecting the First Lady’s interests.
