There’s one terrific radiant gourd on display at The Growing Place. In fact, you might just say this is “some pumpkin.”
Meet Wilbur…Not the pig, the pumpkin – and an oversized one at that, on display at The Growing Place’s Aurora location. Using Charlotte’s Web as inspiration, the center has carved this pumpkin porker, all for a good cause.
“It’s a charity event that we’re doing this year for Mutual Ground who’s based out of Aurora, but they service a lot of the same areas around here, they service victims of domestic violence to sexual abuse,” said Michael Massat, Manager of The Growing Place.
For five bucks, visitors can take a guess at Wilbur’s weight, for the chance of winning a $50 gift certificate to The Growing Place, along with the opportunity to display this hearty hog at the location of their choice on Halloween.
Anyone who donates also gets a $5 coupon for a purchase of $30 or more at The Growing Place.
