Phelps County Regional Medical Center (PCRMC) held its third annual pumpkin decorating contest on Tuesday, October 25th, 2016.
Pumpkins submitted had to have a Breast Cancer Awareness theme (with October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month) and could be decorated or carved. Winners were determined by votes that were cast with money.
The contest raised a total of $856.86 this year. All proceeds benefited the Phelps Regional Health Care Foundation’s Breast Center Mammography Fund, which provides uninsured women in need with free mammograms and ultrasounds.
There were both individual and group categories. Medical Oncology won the group category with its entry of “Rooting Out Breast Cancer Pink Pig.” Infection Prevention came in a close second.
In the individual category, Lora Gilbert won with a Kitty Cat pumpkin entry, with Mechelle Grumney coming in a close second.
Prizes were awarded to the group and individual whose pumpkins had the most money.
There were 16 participants in this year’s pumpkin contest.
PCRMC, the Phelps Regional Health Care Foundation, Auxiliary & Volunteer Services and the Comprehensive Breast Center all thank everyone who entered a pumpkin into the contest and to those who voted with their dollars!
