Add a beautiful piece of glass art to your home while supporting the Mercer Island Youth and Family Services Foundation by purchasing glass pumpkins during the annual Pumpkin Patch Fundraiser this October.

The fundraiser is made possible through a partnership with the Youth and Family Services Foundation and a group of glass blowing artists. The Pumpkin Patch Fundraiser features glass art by Island resident Joni Johnson, local artists Eric Anderson, Jesse Bach, Lon Clark, Heath Connor, Robert Mays, Sean Star, Ryan Staub and Uptown Glass.

Proceeds from this fundraiser directly support Mercer Island Youth and Family Services (MIYFS), the City of Mercer Island’s human services department, which touches every member of the community through counselors in the schools, senior outreach and advocacy, affordable family and individual counseling, arrested youth and early intervention programs, family assistance and a thriving thrift shop.

The glass pumpkins are available at many Island businesses during the month of October.
