To the editor:

The Boys & Girls Club of Bainbridge Island would like to extend a huge thank you to Bainbridge Gardens for the 20th Annual Pumpkin Walk.

Bainbridge Gardens works so hard to plan and implement this wonderful community event that raises money to help support the Boys & Girls Club. We know they could choose any organization to donate the proceeds to, but they continue to choose us and therefore, the kids and families of Bainbridge Island. We are always blown away by the trail of more than 300 carved pumpkins, including those unbelievable vignettes. They really go the extra mile to make this such a spectacular island tradition.

Of course, this event would not have been possible without the help of our volunteers. Every year we have a group of Rotarians, Kiwanians, Girl Scouts, Boys & Girls Club Board members, high school students, friends and family come out to lend a hand. We cannot thank them enough for all of their hard work.

Finally, we would like to thank all of those who attended the Pumpkin Walk this year. The donations that you gave were above and beyond what we expected and really show how this community comes together to support the things they believe in. We are proud to say that 100 percent of the money raised will make a direct impact in the lives of our community’s youth and teens.

On behalf of the members, staff and Board of Directors of the Boys & Girls Club of Bainbridge Island, thank you!
