We know many people have been inquiring and anxiously awaiting an announcement regarding our 2022 season.
It is with VERY heavy hearts that we have made the very difficult decision to no longer continue to run and operate the Grim Acres Scare Away Cancer Haunted Event.
The financial burden, mental, physical and health requirements to run such a big event are no longer feasible for us to continue. Therefore, we are ceasing operations and will be permanently closing the Grim Acres Scare Away Cancer Halloween Haunt, effective immediately.
We would like to offer you our heartfelt thanks for your many years of support and continued generosity for each and every one of our Grim Acres Scare Away Cancer events over the last twelve years. We feel deeply thankful for all you have done for us. The memories you have given us fills us with continued joy and will last us a lifetime!
We would also like to thank our many dedicated sponsors for their help and generous donations over the years!
Most of all, we want to thank our many volunteers that helped to contribute to the success of the Grim Acres Haunt. We could not have done it without you.
It is because of your support and giving that over $130,000 was raised and donated to the Canadian Cancer Society. This helped support many programs aimed at providing much needed help and inspiration for Canadians everywhere in their fight against cancer.
While the Halloween feature will no longer be our main fundraising program, we will still continue to raise help and awareness through other events we plan on having at various venues in Brandon in the future. Stay tuned for details! We will also still be actively involved in our Superheroes Against Cancer Alliance (SACA) outreach programs, and will also be looking into possibly having movie under the stars type fundraising events as well.
For those who are interested, we will be having a yard sale on Sept 24th and 25th from 9am to 3pm at Grim Acres in the previous “Phobia/Carnevil” Haunt. We will be selling off all of our high quality props, costumes and Halloween Decor at fair market closeout pricing. We would encourage everyone to come check it out as 12 years of haunting can produce a lot of scares. Cash, credit or debit will be accepted. Please stay tuned for more upcoming details. Also, please remember that in the interest of fairness, we will NOT be selling props in advance of the sale date.
Once again, from the bottom of our hearts, we thank each and every one of you for your past patronage and continued support in the future in our commitment to Scaring Away Cancer!
