I was fortunate enough to grow up in an area where Halloween was a very big deal. Starting toward the middle of September, and sometimes running into November, Halloween attractions big and small cropped up in surrounding towns like wildfire. While there wasn’t always something exciting to do most of the year, for a month-and-a-half there were more haunted houses, haunted hayrides, pumpkin patches and corn mazes to visit than we could keep up with!
My friends and I all had our favorites based on a multitude of factors, and every weekend our parents took turns driving us to the next one on our list. While admission wasn’t always cheap, most of these haunted or Fall-themed attractions were run by local non-profits, including volunteer fire departments and animal shelters. The money we paid helped them with their yearly expenses, and we got a good scare, or just some seasonal fun, in the process.
In order to raise even more money beyond the cost of a ticket, some of these haunted attractions hosted raffles, with the winner being chosen on the last day of the season. And those raffles are exactly what our Halloween candy bouquets would be perfect for! If you’re part of an organization that will be running a Fall or Halloween attraction or event this year, consider adding a raffle for one of our Halloween candy bouquets. You might be surprised by how many extra donations you can scare up!
