COMMUNITY SERVICE GROUPS HOST ANNUAL HAUNTED HOUSE – FRIGHTMARE 2008.
Jefferson City, TN - The Bonner Scholars, a community service scholarship
program at Carson-Newman College, is proud to be sponsoring FRIGHTMARE 2008
on October 28th through November 1st beginning at 7:00 pm each night.
This terrifying attraction is the 6th annual haunted house on the college
campus and is regionally recognized in 2007 by the Knoxville media as one
of the best haunted attractions in East Tennessee.
“Last year was a great success for FRIGHTMARE as we saw nearly 1,200
people enter through our gates,” said Chris Wooden, president of the
Bonner Scholars Program. “Because of the quality of our event and great
reviews last year, we expect to grow even more.”
Being a fundraiser for the Bonner Program, FRIGHTMARE 2008 is also partnering
with Carson-Newman Community Connections, a campus organization dedicated
to connecting students with community service opportunities.
“As Bonners, being devoted to community service, we will use the money
and cans donated to give back to the Jefferson City community through our
various programs and community outreaches,” said Wooden.
Prices are $6.00 per person, but a thrill seeker can bring in a canned food
item to receive $1.00 off admission, except for Halloween night. Last year,
FRIGHTMARE collected over 700 cans for Appalachian Outreach to assist in preparing
free meals for the Thanksgiving holiday.
For an additional $4.00, a Fright Pass can be purchased which allows immediate
admission to the front of the waiting line.
FRIGHTMARE 2008 is located at the Bonner House, off of Russell Ave, on the
campus of Carson-Newman College. “Look for the 40 foot pumpkin out front,”
Wooden said smiling. “You can’t miss it.”
