Connoisseurs in pursuit of the perfect pumpkin know there is only one place to find a gorgeous gourd that's ripe for the picking - Pumpkinville, in Great Valley. It's the season's signature event, full of family-friendly activities to please everyone.
This year, Pumpkinville has added an exciting new "pink" pumpkin to its pumpkin yard. This new pumpkin is unique not only because of its color, but because its sale will benefit local breast cancer services.
Dan and Diane Pawlowski, owners of Pumpkinville, said they are excited to offer this new addition to their variety of pumpkins and support the WNY Affiliate of Susan G. Komen.
"When Diane and I researched growing pink pumpkins, we knew immediately we had to use them to raise money for the Susan G. Komen Western New York," Dan said. "They've been a huge success with our crowds and we've only been open five days."
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each "pink" pumpkin will be donated to the WNY Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Funds raised by the Komen WNY Affiliate go to support local breast health education and outreach programs and services for families affected by this disease.
Pumpkinville is located at 4844 Sugartown Road, off Route 98 in Great Valley, just minutes from Ellicottville and is open now through Halloween, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day. Admission is free. For more information, visit www.pumpkinville.com.
