Dakota Wesleyan theatre students are helping a good cause as they spook locals during a haunted house that opened Friday.
DWU students involved in the Children’s Miracle Network and the DWU Theatre Department will present a Halloween Haunted House from 7 to 10 p.m. on Saturday to Wednesday, Oct. 26 to 31, with kids’ hour from 6 to 7 p.m. on Monday through Wednesday.
The haunted house is located in the upstairs of the Ben Franklin store on the corner of Third Avenue and Main Street. Entrance fee is $5 and proceeds will be split between CMN and the theatre department.
CMN, the largest student-run philanthropy in the nation, was introduced to campus this semester by Nathan Hofer, DWU student activities director.
“I was super involved in it when I was at college and saw the impact it made in the families and the kids’ lives,” Hofer said.
Hofer is also organizing a Children’s Miracle Network “Tigerthon” in February for CMN, which will be “kind of the culmination of all the fundraising we will do and will include the Miracle families and students in one big 12-hour event that, in many ways, is kind of a celebration for life and what CMN does.”
