FFA Pink Pumpkins Report

Thursday, December 7, 2017

The MMCRU FFA Organization purchased pink pumpkin seeds last spring to raise money and give half the proceeds to the breast cancer association. We first thought of the idea from being approached by the Pink Pumpkin Foundation at National Convention of last year. The Members of Ag classes planted the pumpkins at their test plot location donated by a local farmer, James Mayer. FFA members sold the pumpkins at football and volleyball games including the local Candy Corn festival in Marcus. The FFA members raised over $400 with the pumpkins and made the decision to donate $300 of the proceeds to the breast cancer foundation. Thank you for your donation.
