Pumpkin Prowl has been a success thanks to all those who have volunteered their valuable time for our cause. We are in need of volunteers every year for many aspects of the planning and event day activities of Pumpkin Prowl. Here is a list of the positions we are looking to fill. Please note that we will also sign off on volunteer hours for high school students for certain positions.
– share our posts on social media, with friends, colleagues, grandma, etc.
– put up a flyer in your building, community bulletin boards, etc.
– help us solicit small donations of either candy/non-candy options for participating homes or monetary donations for supplies, prizes, or so we
can buy the candy for participating homes ourselves.
– help us deliver flyers throughout the Crown Point community
– 2 runners on event day to help run any necessary errands
– 2 volunteers to remain at the park while we Prowl the streets
– 4 people to run games and 2 to fill in for breaks or to help as needed throughout the event
– people to wear reflective vests to help keep the kids safe as they venture through our streets
– a few volunteers to help set up and take down the day of the event
– a photographer/ videographer to help capture the event for future promotional material and our event album
– fresh ideas to help us expand on the event this and every year
_ be a vendor at our pre-Prowl event offering free crafts, games, etc.
– if you live on the parade route, you can volunteer to hand out candy at your
home so the kids can enjoy an alternative Halloween similar to the actual
thing. We also look for people to bring a chair and fill the gaps between homes
as well and hand out candy. We will supply all candy and prizes so you don’t
have to supply these items for two Hallowens. The parade route is Belview
between Cannon and just beyond Campbell, Kensington between Barton and
Cannon, and Rosslyn between Barton and Cannon)
We have had so much support from individuals and small businesses over the years to keep this a free and sustainable event. Every little bit helps from $5, to candy donations. Every year the generosity grows which helps the event do the same as we have gone from 20 children parading with us that first year, 250 in 2017. We continue to add to our pre-Prowl activities and hope to continue to build on this aspect of our event in future years.

Sponsorship Brackets and Badges
Below are our sponsorship brackets from Title Sponsor, to Bronze Batman Sponsor for donations over $100 and under $250.
As we have stated, donations can be monetary or in-kind services or goods such as candy, flyer printing, trick-or-treat bags, etc. which all help us reduce our operational costs.
We have created the following badges that those who donate can display proudly on their website or otherwise.
The Super Hero Sponsorship badge was created in honor of our super hero and community firecracker, Kate Andrus, and the Bronze Batman badge was created in honor of a wonderful Pumpkin Prowl supporter, volunteer, and booster, our friend Chris Parkinson who passed away suddenly in the spring of 2019.
