HCMC’s annual pumpkin carving/decorating contest began Thursday, October 27 and continues through Friday, October 28 in the hospital’s cafeteria. HCMC employees got together and decorated pumpkins for the annual contest, using departmental themes for their creative entries.
For example, the Labor & Delivery Unit’s entry features a basketful of “baby” gourds; Food & Nutrition Services explains “how pumpkin pies are made;” and an incarcerated pumpkin is housed in a mini-cell — an entry from the Jail Medical Services.
Votes for the best pumpkins will be cast in the form of donations to Together We Care, the Hennepin Health Foundation’s annual employee giving campaign. Last year’s pumpkin carving contest raised $850 in donations.
