SCARE for a CURE
Born out of the ashes of legendary haunts Britannia Manor and Haunted Trails and raised from the infamous backyard haunt of local celebrity Jarrett Crippen, a.k.a. The Defuser, SCARE for a CURE's talented, creative and fiendish crew of special effects artists, set builders, audio and lighting techs, costume designers, make up artists and actors work year-round alongside volunteers from community organizations throughout Central Texas to build the haunt bigger and better each year.
SCARE's inaugural Haunt in 2007 raised $5,000 to support breast cancer recovery. The 2008 Haunt raised $10,000 that went toward scholarship funds awarded to four students affected by cancer. In 2009 we broke all previous records, donating $15,000 in proceeds to the Breast Cancer Resource Centers of Texas.
The 2009 haunt logged over 12,000 volunteer hours from nearly 300 volunteers. Our crew has included teams from Sony Online Entertainment, Office Max, Americorp, Austin Art Institute, and students from Austin Sunshine Camps and Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired/Criss Cole Rehabilitation Center.
SCARE for a CURE is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
SCARE for a CURE is an Austin-based nonprofit organization that raises money for local cancer charities, "one SCREAM at a time!" Each year we produce Austin's only extreme, full contact, interactive haunted house adventure that is guaranteed to chill the depths of your soul.
