I want to extend a warm thank-you to everyone who contributed to make our 17thannual Pumpkin Giveaway a huge success! Twenty-five bins of pumpkins were delivered to the Tuscany Club at 6:30 am on a chilly Saturday morning and by 8:30 it had been transformed into our best pumpkin patch ever.
We don’t have the weight count from the Food Bank yet, but we collected a record amount of both food and cash donations.
Congratulations to Morgan and Georgia – this years winners of the colouring contest and the excited recipients of Toys R Us gift certificates.
Thank you very much to the Tuscany Sobey’s for selling us the pumpkins at cost, as well as donating hot chocolate, to the Tuscany Starbucks for their kind donation of coffee and condiments, to John at the Tuscany Club for the loan of tables, chairs and for promoting Pumpkin Day, to The Tuscany Sun and Homes and Land magazines for promoting the event and ad space, and to my amazing team and their families for their contribution of time, effort and muscle moving pumpkins and – most of all – to everyone who turned out to support such a worthy cause.
Community spirit is alive and well and Saturday’s turnout was a heart-warming example. Thank you!
