On August 18, 2017, the Milton District Hospital Foundation was pleased to receive a cheque for $11,327 from the Haunted House Committee who raised vital funds for MDHF and the hospital by organizing the 7th Annual Haunted House at Milton Mall last October.
The two-day, weekend event brought in thousands of Milton locals, who enjoyed the frightfully fun festivities featuring strategically placed animatronics, props and lighting to create the spooky atmosphere. In lieu of an admission fee, the Haunted House asked for donations to benefit the Milton District Hospital Foundation. “We’re delighted to accept this donation from the Milton Haunted House”, said Andrea Cayer, Development Manager for the Milton Hospital Foundation. “The event was a great success and we thank the committee for organizing such an exciting way for the community to support our hospital.”
Some of the props used for the Haunted House came from chief organizer, Rick Di Lorenzo’s personal collection amassed from years of accumulating for his own Haunted House, a popular neighborhood attraction each year. In search of a bigger venue, Di Lorenzo brought the Haunted House to the Milton Mall’s generously donated unoccupied retail space, and thus, the Milton Haunted House was born!
Milton Haunted House organizers wish to thank the members of the community who volunteered their time to help make this year’s event a success. A special thank you to the Haunted House sponsors, the Canadian Champion, Mattamy Homes, Fieldgate Commercial Properties, Milton Mall, Milton Hydro and the Tiger Jeet Singh Foundation.
The committee is already hard at work planning this years Haunted House, which will take place at Milton Mall October 28-29th, 2017.
