Last night I had the pleasure of attending an amazing event.

 

I went to the 'The Great Pumpkin Soiree' at the Radisson Plaza Hotel, put on by 'Kalamazoo In Bloom'. The event was to help raise money so that group Kalamazoo In Bloom can purchase thousands of locally grown plants, and flowers to beatify Bronson Park, Portage Library Lane and the Arcadia Festival Site.

"The pumpkin-themed fundraiser featuring area chefs and restaurants that have prepared delicious delicacies made with pumpkin for our tasting pleasure.  Vote a People's Choice winner and see who our special guest judges choose as Overall Pumpkin Champion and Most Creative Use of Pumpkin".

It was a wonderful night, and I encourage everyone to attend next year. I even bought a topiary of a Fox that will be placed in the park ( I can hardly wait to go visit the little guy).
