District 219 Education Foundation and Fear City Chicago Haunted House, have teamed up for a second year, to raise funds for “District 219 Students in Need”.  Last year, the combined efforts brought in a little over $5,000 in donations.  This represents only 10% of the total funds the foundation requires in order to meet their 2014-2015 school year commitments. The Foundation is setting their sights high, with the goal of raising $10,000!  Your donation is gravely needed!  We can only reach this goal with your help!

Did you know that the proportion of students qualifying for the reduced or free lunch program has reached a staggering high of 35% of the district’s 5,000 students?  Over the past six years the District 219 Education Foundation has raised and distributed in excess of $150,000 for the basic educational tools, scholarships and college entrance-related fees. The Foundation continues to distribute breakfast bars and other food essentials to students in need as state and federal funds evaporate.  

Students, parents, teachers and supporters of the District 219 Education Foundation, along with the thousands of visitors who flock to Fear City Chicago Haunted House will see your company’s logo and generous level of commitment.  Your support is desperately needed today!  

Fear City Chicago Haunted House is generously donating a portion of EVERY ticket sold to the District 219 Education Foundation.  Won’t you help us reach our goals by participating this year?  To become a sponsor today or learn more about the fun and exciting opportunity for you to increase your company’s visibility…call Alyse at 847.561.9279 or Mark at 773.837.3369 (visit www.FearCityChicago.com or www.219foundation.org).
