Scares That Care!

Hello Horror Fans!

Id like to Thank Justin for allowing us to post about our organization!

I would introduce myself, but who I am is unimportant! Im here representing Scares That Care

Scares That Care! is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to uniting horror fans to help ck kids.

Led by horror film director and retired police officer Joe Ripple, this benefit will utilize the fan base of the horror, haunt and Halloween genres to raise funds and awareness for ck children in need. We plan to have a GREAT time holding benefits, by showing films, having lent auctions and maybe getting lucky enough to have a few celebrity appearances along the way. Our success depends upon YOU.

To date, we have raised a minimum of $10,000.00 for both the Johns Hopkins Children’s Cancer Center, and The Kennedy-Krieger Institute!

This years proceeds will be going to the “Make-A-Wish” Foundation!

And when I say proceeds I mean 100% of all monies raised!

Scares That Care! functions solely on the generoty of horror fans, or those who just like to help kids. All proceeds go to the kids…we keep nothing.

If this sounds like something you might be interested in head on over to the main TE

“Scares That Care!” will be hosting a benefit dinner and dance, complete with a few celebrities from the horror film genre. The dinner will be a buffet style dinner, and a cash bar will be available. The location of the Benefit Dinner and Dance will be the Wyndham Hotel in Gettysburg, so plenty of opportunity for ght-seeing and tours during the day before the dinner. We even have a special group rate for rooms, so make sure you tell them that you are with the “Scares That Care!” group to receive the special rate!

The cost per each ticket is $60.00, and the dress for the event is however you want to come dressed! Costumes, Black Tie, Ball or evening gown, or even jeans or pajamas…I don’t care, because this is all about raing money for those who really need it!

All proceeds benefit Scares! Get all the details @
