GREAT VALLEY - Pumpkinville will have pink pumpkins available at its pumpkin yard to benefit the Western New York affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
Dan and Diane Pawlowski, owners of Pumpkinville, said they are excited to offer the addition to their variety of pumpkins.
"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. They've been a huge success with our crowds and we've only been open five days," Powlowski said.
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. Money raised by the Komen WNY Affiliate go to support local breast health education and outreach programs and services for families affected by this disease.
Diane Pawlowski will be honored later in the morning at the Women of Influence awards and luncheon. The Pawlowski family took over Pumpkinville in 1996, making it an entertainment destination for families wanting to do something on a fall afternoon.
Pumpkinville is located at 4844 Sugartown Road, off Route 98 in Great Valley, minutes from Ellicottville. Pumpkinville is open through Oct. 31 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. Admission is free. For more information visit www.pumpkinville.com.
