WEYBURN - Mayhem Manor presented a $8,000 donation to representatives of the City of Weyburn and Heritage Village, that was raised during their recent "Haunting of Heritage Hill" Halloween event.
The $8,000 contribution was part of the funds raised from the first-ever "Haunting of Heritage Hill", a haunted house event held at Heritage Village, from October 28 to 31, hosted by Ernie Parisien and his Mayhem Manor volunteers.
"My overall experience was better than I expected," said Parisien. "From the use of Heritage Village, to all the new and returning volunteers that all stepped up to come act or help in other forms. The experience was wonderful and fulfilling."
Around 750 people went through the haunted house tour. The City of Weyburn had 21 volunteers which helped with safety and directing attendees. Weyburn Police Services were also at the event as security support.
"The Parks and Leisure department is incredibly thankful to Ernie for his generous donation," said Ryan Dale, leisure services manager for the City of Weyburn. "This event was a great opportunity to showcase Weyburn and Area Heritage Village in a new way, and to so many new people who have never visited the village before."
Members of the Weyburn and Area Heritage Village board were also in attendance at the cheque presentation. The City of Weyburn will use the money towards budgetary priorities at the Weyburn and Area Heritage Village.
