Smashing cancer one pumpkin at a time

BUCKSPORT - Smashing cancer one pumpkin at a time.

That was the theme earlier today in Buckports. The Beth Wright Cancer Resource Center held a fundraiser through 14 area salons from Trenton to Addison who sell paper pumpkins in honor of or in memory of someone who has cancer.

 

Thelma Beal vice president of the Beth Wright Cancer Resource Center said "It's always important to try and support local organizations in our area. Beth wright cancer resource center in Ellsworth supports Hancock and Washington county with all of its programs."

 

Kids and even adults got to launch the pumpkin into the Penobscot river as a finale.
