Haunted House raises over $10,000!

November 14, 2019

Phobias theme a Phenomenal Fundraiser!

The 2019 Heritage Haunted House with its ‘Phobias’ theme was as fearsome and frightening as we expected! It was also a huge, sellout success. We are always staggered by the scale of this Halloween project, imagined and spearheaded by Carly Burbank.

It takes months each year to transform the private home on Heritage Lane into a spine-tingling haunted house. The designers play to all senses working with lighting, sound effects and even a live cast of actors to ensure that the experience is vivid and memorable, and different every time. This year over 50 volunteers were involved in the event.

For the first time the haunted house was open for two nights this year. On the 31st it was for Trick or Treaters as usual (and as usual the line up went around the block!) On November 1st it was guaranteed entry for everyone with a pre-purchased ticket. This new option allowed extra visitors and brought in additional funds. Over the two nights an amazing $10,105.53 was raised.

We can hardly believe so much money came from all that horror, but Help Fill A Dream is delighted and grateful to be the recipient of all the donations. The money raised by the tireless crew is more than enough to fill a Dream for a Vancouver Island child. Filling a Dream is a significant milestone for any fundraiser and organizers can be proud of their contribution to the health and happiness of a child and their family. We can’t thank Heritage Haunted House enough.
