Noreen Venables (l) of Bayley’s Bistro presents a $400 cheque to Selena Husband, entertainment coordinator for Forest View Place residential care facility at Dr. Helmcken Memorial Hospital.

Half the money came from a guess the weight of the pumpkin contest while Bayley’s Bistro provided the second half. The pumpkin weighed 209 pounds.

Two people guessed 208 pounds and both are receiving first prizes – lunches for two.

“Thank you everyone for your generous donations,” Venables said. “It was a fun time again just trying to figure out the weight.”
