Final Oconomowoc Haunted High raises $95,000
The Oconomowoc Public Education Foundation (OPEF) announced Monday that its three haunted events raised more than $114,000 to support educational opportunities in the Oconomowoc Area School District.
Proceeds from the Haunted High attraction at the former Oconomowoc Middle School, combined with income from the third OPEF’s Haunted Ball
and the raffle of the Haunted Bus, set new records for the foundation as it enters its fifth year.
“We set out to make 2012 our best year yet, and we did just that, thanks to more than 500 volunteers, an amazing group of leaders and the support of sponsors and donors,” said Mike Herro, president, OPEF board of directors.
More than 9,500 “victims” went through the 10 sessions of Haunted High’s “Senior Year,” ending the four-year run.
Net proceeds from Haunted High alone were $95,000, a 106 percent increase over the first Haunted High in 2009.
