Connoisseurs in pursuit of the perfect pumpkin know there is only one place to find a gorgeous gourd that’s ripe for the picking – Pumpkinville in Great Valley! It’s the season’s signature event, full of family-friendly activities to please everyone.

This year, Pumpkinville has added an exciting new “pink” pumpkin to its pumpkin yard.  This new pumpkin is unique not only because of its color, but because its sale will benefit local breast cancer services:

Dan and Diane Pawlowski, owners of Pumpkinville, are excited to offer this new addition to their variety of pumpkins and support the WNY Affiliate of Susan G. Komen.

“When Diane and I researched growing pink pumpkins, we knew immediately we had to use them to raise money for the Susan G. Komen Western New York.  They’ve been a huge success with our crowds and we’ve only been open five days!” said Dan Pawlowski.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each “pink” pumpkin will be donated to the WNY Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure®.  Funds raised by the Komen WNY Affiliate go to support local breast health education and outreach programs and services for families affected by this disease.

Diane Pawlowski will be honored at the Women of Influence Awards and Luncheon.  The Pawlowski family took over Pumpkinville in 1996, making it an entertainment destination for families wanting to do something on a fall afternoon. Dan and Diane and their children Lisa and Jim combined their creativity with hard work to grow Pumpkinville into the regional tourist attraction it is today.

Pumpkinville is located at 4844 Sugartown Road, off Route 98 in Great Valley, just minutes from Ellicottville and is open from September 15th through Halloween, October 31st, 9am – 7pm each day. Admission is free.  For more information visit:
