12th Annual Pumpkin Ball

October 24th, 2015

Spokane Convention Center

Since its inception in 2004, the Pumpkin Ball has raised over $1.6 million after expenses–money that goes directly to help the kids in our community who need it most.

In 2014, your generous donations helped us raise over $205,000–funds that stay right here in Spokane! We can’t wait to come together again in 2015 in support of such an impactful event. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.

See you in October!
