Thank you to community, police, sponsors for successful PCC pumpkin fest

I am writing to share a roundup of our recent Pelham Children’s Center Pumpkin Festival.

We are so thankful for such a successful event! Of course, none of it is possible without the tremendous community support and our amazing volunteers!

The Village Police came ready to hold the line for our Fun Run for the kids with over 100 participants! And the use of the Daronco Townhouse helped house the much-anticipated Book Sale.

All of the funds raised from the event will go to support the Pelham Children’s Center and its mission to provide access to enriched early childhood education and tuition assistance to those in need. 

Another big thank you to our sponsors and donors for all of their contributions!

Our Pumpkin Patch was sponsored by The Mellstrom-Bishoff Team of Sotheby’s International Realty and Maurice Owen-Michaane of Capital Realty sponsored the much-loved slide.  Compass, Houlihan Lawrence, D. Ragno and Rockwell’s were also major sponsors. 

We so appreciate all of the donations that combined into great raffle giveaways:
