Notes from the 2013 Haunted House


There are not enough words to express our gratitude to the sponsors and every worker at the 15th Annual READ Haunted House.  We appreciate our "victims", aka customers.  Our incredible sponsors supported us financially or with goods ranging from door prizes to haunted house props. 

Our volunteer team of monsters worked themselves to "death" putting on a  horrific show.  With 8,000 sq. feet of haunted house, there was a lot of "scaring to fund literacy" the nine nights we were open. Thank you so much!

The HH would be impossible without the backing we are consistently given.  We look forward to the teamwork and good times we will all share setting up and holding HH 2014.
