Local media personalities in Winnipeg have once again gathered last October 25 for the annual “Carving for a Cause” hosted by Kildonan Place Shopping Centre. Participants from various TV, radio and print got to carve pumpkins in support of their favourite causes. The winning pumpkin was based on who got the most reaction on Facebook which was won by Brody and Randy of QX 104 with 898 votes. The team got an extra $500 for their choice of charity which is the Winnipeg Humane plus 10 cents per vote.
Runners-up were Kerri & Vicki from 94.3 The Drive and Pamela & AJ from Hot 100.5. These teams received extra donations of $300 and $200, respectively plus 10 cents per vote.

All participating teams got $100 each that was donated to their choice of charity plus 10 cents per vote. This year, people got to vote in –person as well on National Pumpkin Day last October 26th.
