Pendleton Family to Attend White House Easter Egg Roll

The White House might be celebrating Easter today, but for many, including the family of slain teen Hadiya Pendleton, the real celebration begins Monday at the annual White House Easter Egg Roll.

The White House might be celebrating Easter today, but for many, including the family of slain teen Hadiya Pendleton, the real celebration begins Monday at the annual White House Easter Egg Roll.

The First Lady reportedly invited Cleopatra Cowley-Pendleton and her 10-year-old son Nathaniel to the White House event, just one of many events the family has attended since the slaying of their beloved 15-year-old daughter.

The crowd of more than 35,000 guests will gather Monday on the South Lawn for games, stories and of course the egg roll.

The event will feature celebs like Jordin Sparks, Coco Jones, Austin Mahone and special guest Robby Movak, also known as Kid President.

With the theme “Be Healthy, Be Active, Be You!” the event will also feature a string of celeb athletes from across the country including NASCAR’s Danica Patrick, Minnesota Viking Adrian Peterson and a list of Olympians and Paralympians.

The event will live stream online for those who weren’t able to purchase tickets.
