We know them as our healthcare heroes, but did you know that so many doctors have an artistic side too?
Viewers will get to see that side of them for the 19th Annual Operation Pumpkin, a virtual take place online from 5-7 Sunday, October 25.
The event benefits vulnerable children and families served by the Lee & Beulah Moor Childrenâ€™s Home.
El Pasoâ€™s prominent physicians and surgeons will carve pumpkins and auction off their one-of-a-kind creations. The virtual event will include games for prizes, a raffle, a silent auction and end with a live auctioning of the amazing pumpkins.
â€śWeâ€™re so grateful that we were able to continue this fun tradition by having Operation Pumpkin go virtual,â€ť said RenĂ©e Tanner, Chief Executive Officer for the Lee & Beulah Moor Childrenâ€™s Home. â€śWeâ€™re always in awe with how benevolent and talented our doctors are, and this event is for such an important cause.â€ť
All proceeds help cover the cost of clothes for children for an entire year. â€śWe serve more than 80 children, and they often grow out of clothes quick,â€ť Tanner added.
Tickets are just $25, and each one will enter participants into a raffle to win several items, including a jewelry item generously donated by Johnson Jewelers. Participants must be present during event to win Johnson Jewelers item.
The silent auction will be open to the public and begin Saturday, October 24 and end at 5:50 p.m. on Saturday, October 25.
