AIGA Orlando invites you to its 2nd Annual live pumpkin carving competition, GUTS Orlando. The event will be held October 29, 2016. The carving competition will last from 2 to 5 pm, with an after-party featuring live music from local bands until 9 pm.

The event is free to attend, open to the public, family-friendly, and features the carvers going head-to-head to craft pumpkin creations live that will then be put up for auction to raise money for Make-A-Wish®. While the carving happens, there will be food and drink for sale, trick-or-treating for the kids, live music, silent bidding for the auction, raffle opportunities, and activities for all ages.
Interested in being a carver or creating a carving team? Visit GUTSORLANDO.COM for more information on how to register for carving competition!
The primary goal of this event is to unify the creative community in support of children who fight for their lives every day and to make their wishes come true through Make-A-Wish Central and Northern Florida. All money raised from the carver’s registration fees, the silent auction, as well as food, drink, and merchandise sales during the event will go to benefit Make-A-Wish Central and Northern Florida, and donations will also be accepted.
The competition is open to local and regional creative professionals who want to test their pumpkin carving skills, and more importantly, raise money for the brave kids of Make-A-Wish®.
The deadline to register to carve will be Friday, October 14th.
