Imagine a 1000 lb. pumpkin being towed up by a crane at approximately 100 feet in the air and dropped in the middle of a huge parking lot amongst hundreds of spectators! This initiative is quite entertaining so many people look forward to this event.
The idea is to purchase one or several ping pong balls all numerically identified from 001 up to 2000! You are now assigned specific balls associated to your name. On the day of the Pumpkin Drop, we barricade a large area in a parking lot, stuff our very large pumpkin with the ping pong balls, crane it up and let her drop! The ball closest to the "X" target wins $1,000.
Although this event takes place in October every year, the proceeds from this fundraiser helps support our local programs all year long.
