INAUGURAL “PUMPKIN PAWLEYS” INITIATIVE
TO BENEFIT BASKERVILL FOOD PANTRY IN PAWLEYS ISLAND
Pawleys Island, South Carolina: Cabana Pumpkin Patch, the Georgetown County Chamber of Commerce and Baskervill Food Pantry, have partnered to make October 2022 in Pawleys Island, South Carolina the most festive yet with a goal to have pumpkins on display in front of every business in the 29585 area. This venture, for locals and visitors alike to enjoy, will also act as a fundraiser to benefit local non-profit Baskervill Food Pantry.
The inaugural initiative, “Pumpkin Pawleys”, asks local businesses to order up to 3 large pumpkins through Cabana Pumpkin Patch, a Pawleys Island pumpkin vendor, to display in front of their building during the month of October. Pumpkins are available for order starting September 6, 2022 and ending September 30, 2022 online at www.cabanachristmastrees.com at a cost of $30.00 per pumpkin. 100% of net proceeds of each pumpkin sold will benefit Baskervill Food Pantry. Every pumpkin purchase will include a special “Pumpkin Pawleys” ribbon to distinguish it as being a part of the fundraiser.
“Cabana Pumpkin Patch was looking for a way to benefit the Baskervill Food Pantry”, stated Tammy Sehorn, owner of Cabana for All Seasons. “Partnering with the Georgetown County Chamber of Commerce, a trusted resource representing our community businesses, was a perfect fit.”
Once the participating business completes the online order form, the order will be processed. Each business will be contacted when the vendor receives the pumpkins, and, with a pick-up window of October 1, 2022 through October 5, 2022, the pumpkins will be available at Cabana Pumpkin Patch, 27 Coachman Drive, Pawleys Island, South Carolina 29585. These businesses will be recognized for their part in this effort throughout the month of October online through the Cabana Pumpkin Patch and Georgetown County Chamber of Commerce social media platforms. The Baskervill Food Pantry asks that pumpkins be disposed of at their building for composting in the non-profit’s garden.
“We very much look forward to seeing the brightly colored pumpkins throughout the Pawleys Island area this October,” stated Beth Stedman, President & CEO, Georgetown County Chamber of Commerce. “This initiative, to raise funds for the Baskervill Food Pantry, is yet another example of the power of partnership in Georgetown County.”
