It’s really starting to feel like fall, which is perfect, because some of our amazing and exciting seasonal activities kick off this week. If you haven’t joined in on the fun in prior years—now is the time! Check out all the details here and get ready for a scary good time!
DUMBARTON AT DUSK – FALL FESTIVAL
On Thursday, October 18th from 5:30-8pm we will be at Dumbarton House for our 2nd annual Fall Festival – Dumbarton at Dusk –supporting the American Red Cross. With a large portion of the southeast currently struggling to recover from a natural disaster, it’s an especially wonderful time to support their cause.
This fun fall event will feature complimentary food and drink, and every guest attending will receive a free pumpkin and have the chance to carve it to enter our 5th annual Pumpkin Carving Contest! There will also be fun fall crafts for children and a jack-o-lantern photo booth that is sure to put a smile on your face. There is a suggested donation of $10 per guest for entrance into this event and all event proceeds will help fund disaster relief through the American Red Cross.
GEPPETTO CATERING’S CARVING CONTEST
If you’d like to know more about our annual Pumpkin Carving Contest, we have all the juicy details now! Anyone interested in participating can contact our office for an entry form. Then, just schedule your free pumpkin delivery (for up to 10 pumpkins) to your organization or office. After tapping into your inner artist and carving the pumpkins to perfection, simply send us some photos via email. Submissions are due by Monday, October 29th at 5pm and can be sent to Siobhan Fay at SFay@geppettocatering.com. We’ll be Jack-O-Lantern Judges and announce the winner on Halloween Day, and one lucky winner will receive a year-long membership to the Dumbarton House as well as a delicious drop-off dinner for 12 from Geppetto Catering.
We love this time of year—and we hope to get to celebrate with some of you! Please join us for one or both events, and if you can’t make it this year, please feel free to share all the details with other friends and family who may want to join. We’re hoping for a record turnout—and, of course, tons of spooky fun.
As always, if you’d like to talk fabulous food and catered events, we’re just a phone call or contact form away. Let us know how we can help!
