PumpkinPalooza is an annual celebration of all things pumpkin! This annual fun fundraiser benefits the Northern Nevada Center for Independent Living (NNCIL), which supports programs and services for people with disabilities.

To help make the magic happen nearly 300 people volunteer their time and this year we need you!
