Frightful fundraiser

Chemainus students turn school into house of horrors - for a good cause

  • Oct. 25, 2011 10:00 a.m.

Students at Chemainus Secondary are getting ready to scare up donations for a community outreach program.

They will be hosting a Haunted House on Friday, Oct. 28 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the school’s multi-purpose room.

Chemainus student Grace Peng said this is the second year for the hair-raising fundraiser.

Last year the money was donated to the Harvest Food Bank.

“It is completely organized, planned and run by the students in Chemainus,” Peng said.

Last year’s theme took patrons through Dracula’s Castle. This year, victims will get a chance to explore an abandoned/haunted toy store.

The evening, however, is not just for hardcore gore fans.

“There are also activities and a family friendly movie that will be playing at the same time,” said Peng.

Admission will be $2 and they are also accepting donations to the local food bank.
