Where: The Original KCST Great Pumpkin Giveaway at Old School Furniture and the Saw Shop on E. 6th St. at Highway 101.
Who: Participating sponsors of the Original KCST Great Pumpkin Giveaway are eligible to enter, or designate and entry.
Why: To celebrate Coast Radio’s 25th Anniversary we’re doing something special for the community. $25 of the sponsorship fee for each sponsor of the Original Great Pumpkin Giveaway will go into the prize pool and earmarked for one or more worthy non-profit or charitable organization in our community. Coast Radio General Manager Jon Thompson will match that dollar for dollar, effectively doubling the prize cache.
Participating sponsors are welcome to voluntarily increase the amount of their pledge to the prize fund with an equal match by Coast Radio. In the event of participation wildly exceeding the dreams of station management, Coast Radio reserves the right to limit its total prize fund contribution to the greater of $1000 total or $25 per participating sponsor.
For each additional $75 pledged by sponsors, they’ll receive one additional entry.
How: Sponsors (or their designee) decorate or carve a pumpkin, squash or gourd. They’ll deliver their entry to the Great Pumpkin Giveaway as noted above and it will be judged with three prizes being awarded.
Grand Prize – 50% of the prize fund to the charity or non-profit of choice for the selection judged by the panel as being the best decorated pumpkin.
Runner Up – 20% of the prize fund to the charity or non-profit of choice for the selection judged by the panel as being the second-best decorated pumpkin.
People’s Choice – 30% of the prize fund to the charity or non-profit of choice for the selection judged to be the favorite of those attending and voting at the Original KCST Great Pumpkin Giveaway.
There are no other rules or limitations as of now, but the contest administrator reserves the right to make clarifications up to the close of people’s choice balloting.
