Scaring up funds for dog park
Haunted house raises over $400 with ‘ghouls and drools’
The bullpen at the Kinsmen softball field in Marystown underwent a frightful transformation last weekend as the Marystown dog park committee held a haunted house to help raise funds for equipment for the park.
“The fundraiser was awesome,” said organizer Lisa Gover. “We raised close to $500. This money will be a great help in building the equipment for both the big dog area and the small dog area.”
Gover said the committee would like to add some wooden structures to both areas to give the dogs a play area, as well as some dog-friendly trees for shade. The committee hopes to have the structures in place by spring.
This is the second year for the haunted house. Gover held one last year in her garage, raising $350 dollars.
“We were getting such awesome feedback, we decided to do it again.”
Gover said the Town of Marystown aided the committee in the fundraiser.
“Rob Warr was a great support and allowed us to use the Kinsmen bullpen to put it off this year. We hope to continue with ghouls and drools into the future.”
Volunteers at the ghouls and drools haunted house put on their scariest costumes to help raise money for Marystown’s dog park.
