Each September for the last 12 years we've worked alongside the community to raise money for MountainStar by means of carving pumpkins. Unfortunately in our 13th year (coincidence?), the concept of putting 20-30 people in a confined space for 14 consecutive hours, 3 days in a row just doesn't fly like it used to. As heartbroken as we are to break tradition, we are much more concerned with the lack of donations in which our friends at MountainStar budget for each year.
We're in jam.. the need for funds within our nonprofits have only grown and with limited opportunities to continue in-person fundraising, we would like to ask you to donate to the cause...virtually. MountainStar is opening up their preschool classrooms in Bend, Prineville, and Madras and they need funds for supplies, furniture, play structures, even a bathroom at their Madras facility.
