About GUTS

GUTS is a friendly pumpkin carving competition benefitting Make-A-Wish. AIGA Cincinnati is bringing GUTS to the Queen City!

The primary goal of this event is to unify the creative community in support of the kids who fight the real fight every day at Make-A-Wish Southwest Ohio. Our goal is to raise enough funds to grant at least one wish for these brave kids.

The competition is open to local and regional creative professionals that want to test their pumpkin carving skills, and more importantly, raise money for the brave kids of Make-A-Wish Foundation. We raise money through the carver's registration fees, silent auction, food, drink, and merchandise sold at the event. For those who can't make it or would like to do a little extra, we invite anyone, anywhere, to contribute by donating.
