Haunted House looking for home Durham Jaycees' spook fest is planned for end of October From staff reports The Durham Jaycees are looking for a new home for the annual Haunted House held in late October. Kirk West, the event's chairman, said the organization had a verbal agreement with an office complex but was told Aug.

26 that the owner decided not to donate the space. Usually, the Jaycees are hard at work on the house by the first week of September. The Haunted House is a 30- year tradition for the Durham Jaycees, West said. Every year, the event raises about $20,000, which is donated to local and state charities. Previously, the money has been used to help TROSA, the Ronald McDonald House, the Durham Rescue Mission, Meals on Wheels and Triangle Hospice, just to name a few, West said.

Tickets for a good scare usually cost about $5 for all ages, he said. On an average night, up to 500 people visited the Haunted House, which is staffed by about 30 volunteers. In the past, Haunted Houses have been held in shopping malls and community centers, West said. This year, the group hopes to operate the house Oct. 23-26 and Oct.

29-Nov. 1. To offer the Durham Jaycees space for the Haunted House or for more information, call West at 403-1346. herald sun Local, world and national news, plus award-winning multimedia specials.
