Our 2009 Halloween was our biggest and spookiest year to date. We had over 3,500 Trick r Treaters visit us on Halloween night, in addition to approximately 600 children from the Carville Mills Public School and Kids Come First Day Care, not to mention the hundreds of families that came during the week leading up to Halloween.
This year we had great media attention; we were featured on Party Mamas Reality TV Show (or in my case Party Papa), Global TV, and to top it all off, we won City TV’s & Rogers Pumpkin Patrol Best Haunted House contest, winning the grand prize of $500.00 which we donated to Sick Kids Foundation.
We were extremely thankful to our sponsors; Cadbury and Old Dutch who generously donated Halloween Candy & Potato Chips. Moreover, we would like to thank everyone who visited and made a donation to Sick Kids Hospital, this year we raised $3,224.00
The money raised in donations will go towards a new special Halloween fund that we have created for children who are in treatment at Sick Kids Hospital during Halloween; our goal is to provide children with costumes and Halloween candy to encourage the holiday spirit.
Lastly a heart felt thank you goes out to our family and friends for all their help and support with the set up and tear down of our display and the York Regional Police for showing up on Halloween night and controlling the flow of traffic after we brought it to a stand still on our street.
