SCARE for a CURE presents check to charity partner

SCARE for a CURE, Austin's largest haunt for charity, has donated $20,000 to the Breast Cancer Resource Centers of Texas (BCRC). The check was presented to the BCRC at SCARE for a CURE's annual holiday event and wrap party on Sunday, December 12. The donation follows SCARE's most successful haunt to date.

Says SCARE for a CURE Director Jarrett Crippen, "Each year we start with a goal for what we want to raise for the BCRC. Then we just dive in and create the best haunt experience we can and hope people love it as much as we do. SCARE is so grateful not only to people from Austin and around Texas, but to people from other states and even other countries who have come out to support SCARE and make our goal of donating $20,000 to the BCRC a reality. We are already making plans for next year and hope to make an even bigger donation to Central Texas charities."

SCARE for a CURE started five years ago in the back yard of founders Jarrett and Norma Crippen. Each year the organization has increased its charitable giving by $5,000, with this year's donation to the Breast Cancer Resource Centers of Texas SCARE's largest gift ever. Run entirely by volunteers, SCARE for a CURE is a grassroots organization that has seen substantial growth each year of its operation. The haunt now runs on a large section of acreage near beautiful Lake Austin on property owned by Austin gaming legend Richard Garriott.
