I came across this yesterday.  What a great way to raise money!  What a great way to have fun!

Why do they have Punkin' Chunkin'?  Well, they have it for a good cause!

The World Championship Punkin Chunkin Association supports the mission of the above organizations by contributing to the funding that keeps them going strong. A share of the proceeds from our annual Punkin Chunkin event in November is earmarked for charitable giving. We are proud of our relationship with these vital nonprofits and the work they do to make life better for those in need.

I don't know about you, but I think this sounds like huge fun!  Who knows.  Maybe someday we could have our very own Punkin' Chunkin' someday here in Kickin' Country!
