On Oct. 5 Schopf’s Dairy View Country Store will launch the inaugural Pink Pumpkins Fest. It’s a family event with pony rides, face-painting, tractor rides and a chance to win cash by guessing the weight of the Great Pumpkin in a 50/50 raffle. It’s also an opportunity to help in the fight against cancer and take home one of the very first Door County crop of natural, pink-colored pumpkins.
The Modern Day Drifters will play country music from 11 am – 3 pm. Carlsville’s infamous Pirates in the Harbour will grill food in another of their Parrot Head Club’s “Cheeseburgers in Paradise” fundraising cookouts.
“This spring we ordered 200 special pink seeds from the Pink Pumpkin Patch Foundation,” says Dennis Schopf, “and sure enough, they’re pink!”
The Pink Pumpkin Patch Foundation was created in 2012 to aid in the fight against breast cancer.
“We joined with America’s pumpkin growers in a commitment to give 100 percent of the proceeds from every pink pumpkin sold this year to organizations fighting against cancer,” explains Roxanne Schopf.
Schopf’s Dairy View Country Store is located at 5169 County I in Sturgeon Bay. For more information visit DairyView.com or call 920.743.9779.
