High Springs Area Charities Benefit from Haunted House Proceeds
Madness and Mayhem Inc., a 501(c)(3) not for profit charitable organization that cares with scares, is pleased to announce their donation to four other local charitable organizations from funds raised at their recent Haunted House and Graveyard event held in October 2015. The High Springs Museum, Our Santa Fe River, M.A.P. for Youth, and Plenty of Pit Bulls received a total of $4,000.00 from Madness and Mayhem Inc.’s ticket sales proceeds.
Each year, an incredible amount of time is involved with the haunt’s production. Even though planning for this year’s haunt began in February of 2015, recorded hours did not begin until August. With over 100 volunteers, approximately 4500 total volunteer hours were recorded from August 15, 2015 through November 17, 2015. During that time, many hours still went unrecorded.
Madness and Mayhem Inc.’s 2015 haunt was held in High Springs, FL at the unoccupied old Video City space next to Pepperoni’s on HWY 441. The all-volunteer charity group has fun each year creating a scary and entertaining haunted environment where people from all over the US and Florida willingly come and pay to be frightened. The event was a huge success with over 1100 visitors attending their haunt this year.
