BIG RAPIDS — The [Phi] Sigma Kappa fraternity is set to give two evenings of scares this weekend with their annual haunted house.


“People should head on out this weekend for two main reasons,” spokesperson Carlton Thompson said. “First and foremost: ’tis the season! There’s no better way to get into the spirit of the season than with a few spooks at a haunted house. Second: this event is going towards a cause that is incredibly beneficial for a local organization. This event will be helping members of the community and its surrounding areas.”

The cost to enter the haunted house will be $6 per person for adults, $5 for Ferris students, and kids 12 or younger will be able to get in free, Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. The proceeds will be donated to Area 5 Special Olympics. In 2021, the fraternity raised about $1,600 for the program.

“I would dare to say that being able to host this event every year for the Area 5 athletes means everything to us as a chapter,” Thompson said. “Being able to provide any monetary assistance to the athletes and their families so that they can participate is something we’re incredibly proud of. These days money is tight for families across the state. So, if we can help provide some assistance here locally, we will take that chance every time we can.”
