Haunted House for Harry Chapin Food Bank

Published: Oct 15, 2012 12:34 PM EDT

Could you please announce the follwing event that our family hosts for the last 7 years?

Free San Carlos Park Haunted House! October 26th - October 31st from 6:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.  We are collecting an entry fee of a non-perishable food item for every person who dares to enter the house.  This will benefit the Harry Chapin Food Bank.  This is an annual event that has had as many as 1,000 people through during an evening.  It is graphic and scary.  We use a real coffin and very realistic props.  This haunted house may not be appropriate for everyone.  It may not be appropriate for individuals with heart problems or young children. 

We collected 553 lbs of food last year.  We would like to triple the contributions this year.  Could you help us please?  Tell everyone you know to come by and get the scare of their life for a can of food.  I promise you won't be disappointed.  Money back guarantee!

Please, come be a victim in our torture chamber.  Watch our doctor perform operations in our OR.  Check out "IT" at Clown School.  Visit our haunted graveyard.  Watch out for the hazardous materials that have spilled and be careful in the combustible and flammable liquid room.  Mourn next to our real casket at our funeral parlor.  Visit our venomous snakes (but don't step on any of our babies that escape please).  Enjoy a wonderful and moving meal in our dining room by candlelight.  (Maybe with the candlelight, your date won't know the reason why the meal is moving is because of the maggots.)  And stop by to give a kiss to Freddy, Hannibal, Jason, Michael Myers, and all the gang.  But please, don't lose your head to the guillotine.

Our family would like to thank the high school students who have worked so hard this year to help.  19068 Dogwood Rd. (off Sanibel Blvd.) Fort Myers, Fl. 33967 (San Carlos Park).  Email: or call (239) 340-6569.  Go to
