Dylan’s Candy Bar hosts an Easter egg hunt and party for approximately 60 young children engaged in childcare, foster care and preventive service programs under the New York City Administration for Children’s Services (ACS). The speaking program and Easter egg hunt will be held inside Dylan’s Candy Bar at the northeast corner of 60th Street and Third Avenue in Manhattan.
Dylan’s Candy Bar COO Joe Caparella will host the celebration, along with ACS Commissioner William C. Bell.
In addition to the Easter egg hunt, children will be entertained by a magician and the Easter Bunny, and will receive goodie bags filled with treats donated by Dylan’s Candy Bar and other in-kind donors.

Formed in 1996, the agency oversees the City’s programs of child protection, foster care, preventive services, adoption, childcare and Head Start.
