Each year Walker Furniture reaches out to the Clark County School District to have elementary school students enter a pumpkin drawing contest. This year the top three winning drawings were all created by Robert E. Lake Elementary School students in art teacher Ms. Tammie Gallimore’s classes (Pictured: Teacher Ms. Gallimore, student Briana Magdaleno and Chef Boupha).
At a Chanh Boupha Pumpkin Carving Event held in the Atrium at Walker Furniture on Saturday, Oct. 28, Chef Boupha carved first place winner, fourth grader Briana Magdaleno’s drawing with a captivating eye on a 70-pound pumpkin that she got to take home for Halloween along with a $100.
The second place artist was fifth grader Silvia Lugo with a mysterious tree and third place was second grader Brooklyn Dunn with an outdoor scene.
Chef Boupha and his son carved faces on two more giant pumpkins that were won by guests in a drawing. There was also free face painting plus hot dogs and sodas.
