Both events launch on Monday, September 28.

Digital photos of entries must be submitted by Friday, October 23. Participants must be 18 years of age or younger. Entries can be real pumpkins, faux pumpkins, or any homemade pumpkin form.

The Fall Fundraiser features Halloween-themed works that have been created and donated by local crafters and artists, including Kellie Miyazu and RK Woods Hawaiʻi. They will be available for purchase on the EHCC website. All proceeds will go toward the Youth Arts Series to continue to provide arts education to keiki of all ages.
