Annual Pink Pumpkin Sale!!!
This year was another incredible year for our pumpkin Sales!
We had enormous help from Miller’s Farm Market who delivered the pumpkins already bleached!! Pleasant Valley Greenhouse donated an additional 140 pumpkins for us. Kohl’s sent volunteers to help paint and we were on our way to decorating within 4 days!!
Our decorating team did a fabulous job again this year and due to the generous donation of the warehouse again this year from Nate Smith, we worked morning and night stress free!!
This is one of our largest fundraisers and the community support continues to surpass our goal every year!!! Thank you so much to all that volunteered and purchased ~ we greatly appreciate all the continued support !!
