Scare Away Hunger’s third annual haunted house was a great success. Over Halloween weekend, we acquired 2,200 pounds of cans, $2,400 and welcomed over 1,100 visitors who helped to double our previous accomplishments.
The local high school and college students who organized, built, and ran the haunted house are very proud to give 100 percent of these donations to the Food Bank of El Dorado County.
We look forward to next year and hope to break 3,000 pounds of cans and $3,000 for the Food Bank of El Dorado County.
A huge thanks to all who supported us to make this a tremendous event, including the Knights of Columbus, Mr. Pickles, El Dorado Fitness, Cameron Park Montessori, Hancock Fabrics, Placerville’s Home Depot, Café Santoro, the Thomas family, the Argon Family, News 10, the Mountain Democrat, and all who came to support this cause.
