The 18th Annual Operation Pumpkin, where El Paso’s most prominent doctors take a scalpel to unsuspecting pumpkins, was a success.
This year’s event raised more than $70,000 for children and families served by the Lee & Beulah Moor Children’s Home. More than 400 people attended the fundraiser at the Coronado Country Club, 1044 Broadmoor, on Sunday, Oct. 20.
Area physicians and surgeons carve pumpkins and auction off their creations. The event includes the pumpkin action, silent auctions and raffles.
The nonprofit Lee & Beulah Moor Children’s Home has been serving children and families in our community since 1959 with residential care, foster care, adoptions, and group homes teaching independent living skills.
