Hundreds of pumpkin pickers from Palm Beach County stopped by to celebrate fall and Halloween traditions at the Pop-Up Patch for Philanthropy at The Royal Poinciana Plaza in Palm Beach to benefit Cancer Alliance of Help & Hope. With 1,000-plus pumpkins to choose from, the four-day event raised $20,000 to help local cancer patients.
The Pop-Up Patch’s selection of pumpkins included heirloom, miniature and classic varietals. The Aragon String Quartet provided live music amid family-friendly activities, gelato courtesy of Sant Ambroeus and plenty of photo opportunities.
“We are most grateful to The Royal Poinciana and the community for supporting the pop-up pumpkin patch,” says Stanton Collemer, the CEO of Cancer Alliance of Help & Hope. “It is always wonderful and heartwarming to see families enjoying time with their children and pets as they select their favorite pumpkins … and at the same time giving back by helping local cancer patients.”
Cancer Alliance of Help & Hope is a Palm Beach County not-for-profit organization that pays a portion of qualified cancer patients’ nonmedical bills, supplements basic needs and provides support and information resources.
The alliance helps with expenses such as rent or mortgage payments, utilities, car insurance, car loans and health insurance. For more information, visit CAHH.org.
