Pumpkins For A Cure To Celebrate Seventh Year

MEDIA CONTACT:  RESZEL iNDUSTRIES iDEAVERTISING, riinc@reszel.com

Geneva, IL – Pumpkins For A Cure (PFAC), a non-profit organization, will host their seventh annual pumpkin drive to benefit The Zellmer Childhood Disease Foundation (ZCDF).  Mary and Paul Zellmer’s son, Jim was just six years old when he was diagnosed with Type I diabetes in the fall of 2004.  When Paul came home from the pharmacy with a bag filled with insulin and supplies, Jim panicked and said, "how long will I have to take shots?”  His dad told him “for the rest of your life.”  The small boy’s eyes filled with tears and he said "Mommy fix this."  From that moment on, the Zellmer family knew what they needed to do . . . roll up their sleeves, pitch in and find a way to help the ADA/JDRF raise additional money to help find a cure. That next fall Pumpkins For A Cure was born.

WHERE:  Now in its seventh year, this public event will take place Saturday & Sunday, October 1st and 2nd, 2011 (from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm) at The Kane County Courthouse at 100 S. Third Street in downtown Geneva, Illinois.
