In 2003, Courtney, a junior high school student of Cloverdale organized the first Pumpkin Patch fundraiser. The proceeds benefitted The Cloverdale Family Service and her school. The following year, she was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer and in January 2008 succumbed to the disease. Courtney’s fight and amazing attitude were an inspiration to the entire community and her death left a hole in the heart of the entire community. In 2008, the Cloverdale High School, where she attended, set up the Courtney Jade Davis Memorial Scholarship in her memory. As a fundraising effort for the scholarship, her friends and family decided to carry on her “Pumpkin Patch” in her name. Each year its success and popularity grows and last year over $6,000 was raised and awarded to graduating seniors. This is the Scholarships only fundraiser.
The OktoberFest is being sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Cloverdale and Courtney’s Pumpkin Patch. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Courtney Jade Davis Memorial Scholarship at Cloverdale High School and the Kiwanis Club of Cloverdale.
In the spirit of this unique community, we hope you will be able to join the festivities.
