TUCSON, Ariz. -- Tucson Medical Center doctors used their surgery skills to carve out some elaborate pumpkins Thursday night.

They battled against local chefs for the best jack-o-lantern.

At the end of the night the pumpkins were auctioned off to raise money for the Children's Miracle Network.

"The pumpkins in there are great.  The chefs are probably more artistic than we as surgeons are, but there's art deco in there and there's scary and there's funny and there's murals in there, it goes all across the gamut," said TMC Surgeon Joel Good.

Some of the chefs who participated came from Brio Tuscan Grille, Flemings Steakhouse, and the Hilton El Conquistador.
