Geauga County YMCA Participates in Teal Pumpkin Project During their Halloween Spooktacular

On Friday, October 27 from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., the Geauga Family YMCA opened its doors to over 250 members and guests who partook in the Y’s annual Halloween Party (this year named, Halloween Spooktacular. )

The Halloween Spooktacular was a free event open to the public.  This year, we partnered with the Chardon MOMs Club and Reel’s Auto Sales to participate in the Teal Pumpkin Project. To our knowledge, besides Boo at the Zoo, we are one of the only organizations/YMCA branches in the greater Cleveland area that participated in the Teal Pumpkin Project this Halloween.

The Teal Pumpkin Project provides non-food treats for children who have allergies so they can participate in Halloween safely.  We had 12 Trick-or- Treat stations throughout our facility, each with a traditional orange pumpkin filled with candy AND a Teal pumpkin.

In addition to traditional trick-or-treating, children and their families enjoyed carnival games, a photo booth, face painting, crafts, and more.  Along with donating the Teal Pumpkins, the Chardon MOMs Club also provided the crafts,  the photo booth, and pumpkin tic-tac-toe game while Reel’s Auto Sales donated the non-food treats for the Teal Pumpkins.

The Geauga Family YMCA would like to especially thank Rachel Sanitti, President of the Chardon MOMs Club, and Nicole Reel for working tirelessly the past few weeks to bring the Teal Pumpkin Project to the Geauga Family YMCA and for making the Halloween Spooktacular a fun and safe event for all.
