4th Annual Pink Pumpkin Event Raises Money for Cancer Research
All proceeds given to various causes.
PALMYRA, Maine (WABI) - People in Palmyra bought specially colored pumpkins to help in the fight against cancer.
Pat White owns Pat’s Propane, but he grows a special brand of pink pumpkins on the side.
This was the fourth year of the pink pumpkin event, where he sells pumpkins for five dollars, with all proceeds going to a cancer awareness cause.
On top of the pink pumpkins, there was a special raffle for pumpkins decorated by the art teacher of Nikomis High School, and a few new items in the for masks and t-shirts.
Volunteers were happy to see people come from far and wide to support the event.
“We were so blown away by today, we had a lady from Presque Isle, Maine, we had people from Lincoln, we’ve had some people from Lewiston. We actually even had a gentleman who literally came from Connecticut,” said Lisa Neal, Pat’s daughter and one of several volunteers.
All proceeds this year went to the Champion the Cure challenge.
