Ghosts and Goblins for Charity

By  | 

The ghosts and goblins are out, and this time they have good reason to be.

A local Gadsden County woman who calls herself the "Queen of Halloween" is putting on a haunted house to raise money for hearing impaired children.

She started the Halloween fun 14 years ago and says it gets bigger and better every time. Each year she chooses a new charity to donate the funds raised. This year she's hoping for $3,000 for hearing impaired children.

"We are told there are 26 children on a list that are in need of a special chip and hearing aid that will allow them to learn to hear and speak. We want five of those kids off the list, we want them all but we're shooting to get five off," said Debbie Tanner.

The haunted house on County Road 12 is just five dollars a person. It is open Halloween night from 7-10 p.m. and for one last time on Friday night.

The address is 7702 Fairbanks Ferry Road.

Directions: Take Meridian Road North to County Road 12. Go Left on County Road 12 . The haunted house is on the left after the bridge.
