On Fri., Oct. 30 from 7-9 p.m. the Black Student Alliance (BSA) is hosting their annual Haunted House. This year the event will be held off campus at The Boys and Girls Club, and it is open to both students and residents of Blount County. Admission to the event costs $1 or a canned good per person. All proceeds will go to benefit The Boys and Girls Club and Second Harvest Food Bank.
This event is one of the biggest community fundraisers hosted by BSA, so it takes a lot of manpower to put it together. Students from a number of on-campus organizations have come together along with BSA to help design the house’s scenery and costuming and to act as monsters in the house. The Haunted House is an annual event, and it has been a favorite of Maryville College’s Halloween Week events throughout the years.
“Students can expect from the Haunted House lots of fun times and scariness. Mostly we just want people to have a good time,” said MC junior and BSA President Myresha Hinton. Because the event is so big, Hinton and the rest of BSA appreciate all the support they can get from MC and the Blount County community. Those who have questions about attending the event or who are interested in volunteering can contact Hinton at [email protected].
