The ‘Great Pumpkin Giveaway’ Returns

Weichert, Realtors® – Your Place Realty to Purchase & Handout 500 Free Pumpkins

The parking lot of Weichert, Realtors® – Your Place Realty was filled with hundreds of pumpkins last year for its first-ever “Great Pumpkin Giveaway.”

OSWEGO, Ill. / Sept. 15, 2017 — Hundreds of people found a way to make it to the parking lot of an Oswego real estate company last October, despite the day’s heavy rain.

Some came by car. Others walked. And many, if not more, will do the same thing again later this month.

But why?

The answer: To get a spot in line for the return of the “Great Pumpkin Giveaway” hosted by Weichert, Realtors® – Your Place Realty on September 30.

Halloween fans of all ages dropped by Weichert, Realtors® – Your Place Realty last October to grab a free pumpkin or two. Local residents will be able to do the same again on September 30.

The company’s parking lot will once again become the temporary home to hundreds of pumpkins so local residents can drop by the Weichert® affiliate between 10 a.m. and 12 noon to pick up a free pumpkin or two.

Last year’s inaugural “Great Pumpkin Giveaway” saw the team from Weichert, Realtors® – Your Place Realty hand out 500 pumpkins to both motorists and pedestrians.

“We couldn’t believe how many people came out in the pouring rain last year for a free pumpkin. It was great,” said Jennifer Hohmann, director of career development at Weichert, Realtors® – Your Place Realty and one of the organizers of last year’s event. “We’re hoping for the same type of turnout this year.”

Seeing the overwhelming success of its first pumpkin giveaway, Weichert, Realtors® – Your Place Realty knew the event had to become an annual affair.

“Giving away hundreds of free pumpkins is one way our office can say ‘thank you’ to a community that has been so kind to us over the years,” said Craig Caffarello, the broker/owner of Weichert, Realtors® – Your Place Realty.

Weichert, Realtors® – Your Place Realty is an independently owned and operated Weichert affiliate. The office services the western suburbs of Chicago.
