Scaring Away Breast Cancer

Amarillo, TX - The goal for many area haunted houses is, of course, to scare people.... But one in particular is hoping to scare away a deadly disease.

For the past seven Halloween's the haunted house on Crockett Street has scared hundreds of trick or treaters free of charge, But this year, they are asking for donations to help fight breast cancer.

In the past two days, they've only raised a couple hundred dollars.

However, owner, Nikki Jordan says it's not about how much money they raise it's all about how they can help.

"When we did it this year we decided we would go a head and raise funds for breast cancer because a lot of our family has survived it or has lost their lives from it," Jordan said, "This is our way to give back."

The haunted house is located at 4308 South Crockett, and is $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for children.

All proceeds will go directly towards the breast cancer association.
