After earlier bake sales, spirit wear tables and local dine out events, Club West has donated $80,000 to the West High athletic department and looks to raise even more.

Club West is unveiling the return of their festive fundraiser on Saturday, Oct. 22 held at the Found Farm. The first ever Halloween fundraiser was in 2019 and its return is highly anticipated. Activities including a haunted hayride, raffle, costume contests, complimentary food and more will run from 5:30-9 p.m.

Volunteers are needed to help set up on 4-6 p.m. on Friday or 10-12 p.m. on Saturday, and to run and manage activities around the farm. High school students can also receive silver cord hours by working as a character in the hayride. Volunteers can sign up here or contact Leslie Austen. Students that are interested in performing for the live entertainment can contact Elizabeth Bruening.

All proceeds will go towards supporting Northwest Junior High School and West High athletic programs. Tickets can be bought in advance or at the door for $5 for kids 18 and younger, and $25 for adults.
