The Magical Glass Pumpkin Patch Story
The Magical Glass Pumpkin Patch is an amazing community event! This annual event brings together local artists for one weekend in the fall, to exhibit and sell hand-made art glass pumpkins on the front lawn of Los Gatos High School (LGHS).
The event supports the artists while raising discretionary money for much-needed high school programs.
Founded by Los Gatos Artists & LGHS Alumni
The glass pumpkin patch was founded in 2002 when LGHS’s art program was in dire financial need.
Los Gatos residents Shelly Monfort and Ken Mollenauer and LGHS alumni Gigi Erickson and Tom Stanton realized that they could create a win-win situation that would benefit both local artists and art programs at the school. The rest is history.
Funds Raised for LGHS Programs
Since 2002, the Los Gatos community has embraced our event and through the years it has now become a local tradition as a way to kick-off the holiday season. We have donated $10,000 to 15,000 per year, totaling over $250,000 to support art programs, the Interact Club (a community service club), beautification of the school grounds, and other LGHS programs in need.
Today, your purchases continue to support both local artists and the Los Gatos High School. Don’t miss the dazzling event of thousands of glass pumpkins and art pieces on display.
