Pumpkins and Breast Cancer Awareness

This weekend my favorite produce farm, Calhoun Produce, sponsored a fundraiser for breast cancer awareness. All proceeds of the Great Pumpkin Cookoff went to the Susan G. Komen foundation. I can’t wait to see what their total take was!
I entered a pumpkin cream cheese roll, and I have to say it was pretty awesome and I don’t like to brag!
I didn’t win—the competition was tough! There were tons of great entries.

My SIL made pink bra cookies and my MIL made two 15-layer chocolate cakes and two 15-layer caramel cakes. They had a silent auction for the cakes and I know they both went for at LEAST $50 each.

After the cookoff, we had a blast checking out Calhoun’s corn maze in the shape of the State of Georgia:
The goal was to find several major cities throughout the “state".” The last stop was the Okeefenokee Swamp. Justin found a gator there!

The kids played on the playground and we took a wagon ride to see some of the animals.

It was a great day for a great cause!

Thanks Sarah for being a part of this day. I plan on this being an annual event. It made the day even better knowing it all went to breasts cancer research. I am so glad your mama thought of this last year. And your cream cheese roll was delicious!
