Photos with Grand Champion Gourd

Proceeds Benefit the Cabrillo Education Foundation

How often do you get to see and touch a hard-to-believe, larger-than-life 1-ton pumpkin (2,000 pounds!)—let alone get to have your photo taken alongside something so extraordinary?

At this year’s Half Moon Bay Art & Pumpkin Festival, October 19-20, you can do both and be the proud owner of an unforgettable keepsake plus help out a great cause!

Your awesome one-of-a-kind photo will be snapped and instantly printed for a special take-home keepsake. The cost is $20 per 4x6 print, with discounts for multiple copies or poses. All proceeds benefit the Cabrillo Education Foundation (CEF), a non-profit for the sole benefit of the students attending our 7 local Coastside public schools.

CEF champions success for Coastside public school students. Through our endowment and fundraising efforts, we are able to allocate money to support key priorities such as a credentialed 5th grade science teacher, Big Lift literacy support, extension of the AVID program in 6th-12th grades, over $10,000 in Innovation Grants, as well as granting over $25,000 in scholarships.

“CEF’s endowment is an example of our community’s commitment to creating a long-lasting foundation for all of our students”, according to its Executive Director, Corrine Bucher.

Your gift makes a difference and we are grateful to all of our donors and partners. Find out more about Cabrillo Education Foundation at: http://www.ceffund.org.
