Lindt has partnered with the family-owned grocery stores to treat participants who complete their Easter Egg Hunt ballots with a 10g Lindt Gold Bunny and the chance to win a Lindt prize basket valued at $50.

Starting on Friday, March 24, participants can pick up a ballot at the Personal Touches Services desk at any Longo's location*.
