BEL AIR — The Harford County community is stepping up to raise money for breast cancer research.

Volun-Teen has planned a pink pumpkin patch on Halloween at The Armory in Bel Air in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The non profit organization is collecting decorated pink pumpkins from the community. So far, several businesses and sports teams have agreed to contribute pumpkins to the cause.

Donations will be collected in mason jars beside each pumpkin. Proceeds will benefit Upper Chesapeake Medical Center.

"The more pumpkins the merrier. We're trying to raise money for the hospital. All of the money we've raised 100% of it will benefit the Cancer LifeNet at the Kaufman Center and I'm really proud of it," Brooke Hopkins, Founder of Volun-Teen said.

Volun-Teen hopes to display 100 pumpkins at the event.

If you would like to decorate a pumpkin, more infornation can be found on Volun-Teen's Facebook page.

The Pink Pumpkin Patch is being held on October 31 from 12 to 5P.M. at the park outside of The Armory in Bel Air.

There will be a hot cider bar, bake sale and variety of raffles. Masks and social distancing are recommended.
