Pumpkins transform to support East TN's cancer community
News


(WBIR) As many people prepare to carve up pumpkins to get in the Halloween spirit, others are transforming theirs to help support those fighting cancer in East Tennessee.

Sweet Pea in Bearden hosted its 4th annual paint your pumpkin event on Saturday.

Customers picked up the paint brushes and craft supplies to make some truly unique creations.

The fundraiser supports the Cancer Support Community which offers support services for people diagnosed with cancer, as well as their families.

The store will have more decorated pumpkins on sale throughout the month as part of the fundraiser.

In 2013, the store's fundraiser encountered trouble when someone stole some of the pumpkins. After hearing about the theft, many East Tennesseans stepped up with donations to help make up for the loss.
