Smashing Cancer – One Pumpkin at a Time!

October 21, 2017 @ 11:30 am - 2:30 pm

Smashing Cancer, One Pumpkin at a TimeSmashing Cancer, is a fundraising event that is the brainchild of Tracy Eaton, owner of Hairbenders Salon in Ellsworth. She is committed to doing her part towards “smashing” cancer out of existence.

For the past several years, Tracy has worked tirelessly to bring her vision to reality by engaging area salons and stylists to sell paper pumpkins for a $5.00 donation to benefit the programs and services of the Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center. From now until October 21, fifteen area salons, listed below, are taking donations for paper pumpkins.

This year, we are busy here at the Beth Wright Center taking a larger role in organizing the event, including offering paper PUMPKINS right here at the Center for you to dedicate to a loved one for a donation of your choice. We are also organizing the exciting grand finale this year.

The grand finale this year will be held at Ghostport at the Bucksport Waterfront Park. Bring your family and friends and join us at either 11:30 am or 2:30 pm SHARP to Smash Cancer, One Pumpkin at a Time! Watch pumpkins be catapulted into the Penobscot River with an old-fashioned-style trebuchet, never to be seen again!

We will also have a booth representing the Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center located right next to the trebuchet. Come visit us! See you there!
