Clarence, NY (WBEN) Nonstop preparations continue to have blue pumpkins available Satuday with proceeds to benefit the family of fallen Buffalo Police Officer Craig Lehner.

"They are busy trying to get all of the pumpkins painted and the yellow ribbons on for Saturday, when we sell them," says Katie Toth of the Great Pumpkin Farm. "They've been trying to get them every minute of the day. They're still being dried."

Toth says there are 300 pumpkins currently ready, but the goal is to have 600 to 800 pumpkins set for Saturday's sale. "They've been using spray paint, which is the best thing to use. We've been looking for donations of blue spray paint. They've been painting as fast as they can," explains Toth.

The pumpkins will be on sale from 11am to 5pm. You make the donation to buy, and 100 percent of the proceeds go to Lehner's family.
