Haunted House Fundraiser to Scare Up Support for Affordable Housing

The air is crisp, the leaves are falling, and Halloween is right around the corner. But this year, something genuinely scary is happening in Campbell River, British Columbia. Our team at Habitat for Humanity is summoning resident thrill-seekers for a “Haunting on Hilchey,” a haunted house fundraiser to support the construction of affordable housing for families in need on Vancouver Island.

The Venue

The “Haunting on Hilchey" happens at 461 Hilchey Road in Campbell River and is also the planned build site for new homes to hopefully break ground next year. Sponsored by and with the generous support of the Campbell River Museum, the Chamber of Commerce, and other local organizations, it will undoubtedly be a hair-raising event. Driven by a sinister sense of fun, volunteers and our own Habitat for Humanity staff members will send brave residents into a world of ghostly encounters, all in the name of building homes for families in need.


Date: October 30 and 31, 2023

Time: 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Location: 461 Hilchey Road, Campbell River

Suggested Donation: $5 per person (Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult)

Guests should prepare for an eerie and exhilarating experience as 461 Hilchey Road transforms into a haunted realm where every corner conceals a ghastly scare! Ghouls, ghosts, and otherworldly creatures will lurk in the dark corridors and rooms, all while contributing to the community’s vital mission of affordable housing.

A Good Scare for a Good Cause

The housing crisis has cast a shadow across the globe, and no place is immune. Families everywhere are grappling with the challenge of finding safe, stable, and affordable housing. But Habitat for Humanity is a beacon of hope, committed to changing this stark reality.
