Fundraiser

For several weeks in the fall, members come together to turn plain pumpkins into holiday delights. A time when new friendships are made and old friends reconnect. The many programs we support throughout the year are funded by this event. 

For several weeks in the fall, members come together to create plain pumpkins into holiday delights. A time when new friendships are made and old friends reconnect. The many projects we support throughout the year are funded by this event. 

The pumpkin sale takes place over several days in the middle of October, but the work at the patch begins in mid-September.

An empty building space is donated for approximately one month each fall.  This site becomes our workshop and sales location.  Since 1984, we have relocated several times, but our loyal customers find us and we continue to grow our mailing list every year. 

In the past few years, we have painted, glazed and decorated over 800 pumpkins.  A long way from our start 37 years ago, when we only painted 50 pumpkins. 
 
This is a huge team effort. From setting up the workspace, receiving and washing pumpkins; drawing; painting; glazing; embellishing; finished pumpkins display; sales; inventory and packing up supplies for next year, we need help in all areas. Come for an hour or stay all day. One day or every day. As much time as you can give us, we'd love to have you at the Patch.
