GUTS 7th Annual Pumpkin Carving Competition

It's that time of year again. The oppressive heat shows signs of wilting. The leaves begin their subtle transformation, revealing their true spectrum. And knife-wielding creatives descend upon the NC Music Factory, prepared to take on all carvers.

AIGA Charlotte is pleased to partner with CRAFTED for the 7th annual GUTS pumpkin carving competition. 2015 marks a special year for GUTS as its long-term vision of going national will finally be realized. This will be the first time GUTS events will be held in multiple cities—and since all GUTS proceeds benefit Make-A-Wishthat means more wishes will be granted this year than ever before.

Make sure to mark your calendar for Friday, October 30th. The event will be held on that date at the NC Music Factory, with carving starting promptly at 4 pm. Participants can carve as individuals or in teams of two or three. Registration opens on Thursday, October 1st at
