Niles Haunted House raises more than $82,000 for groups

Posted:

It has taken a bit, but the totals are in from the Niles Haunted House fundraiser.

Organizers announced on Monday they raised more than $82,000 for charities.

Proceeds from the Haunted House benefit 65 area organizations, ranging from Boys Scouts to the Niles Drama Club. The funds also support three college scholarships.

Organizers say more than 500 people donated almost 20,000 hours to help make the Haunted House and other parts of the Scream Park happen.

During the season, the Haunted House welcomed its 1,500,000 visitor, a woman from New Carlisle who visited October 13th with her two sons.

This was the 40th consecutive year for the attraction. Organizers say plans are already underway for the 2014 season.
