‘Asylum of the Dead’ haunts for a good cause
October 26, 2016
The Asylum of the Dead haunted house, located on 3163 Esplanade, is dedicated to more than a night full of fun and scares. Owners Walter and Tammie Barbee have been running the asylum since 2014. What makes this haunted house especially admirable is that all of the proceeds are donated to charity. In 2014, the Asylum of the Dead donated their earnings to Butte Humane Society. In 2015, they gave their proceeds to the Wounded Warriors Foundation. This year they plan on donating all proceeds to Walle, the winner of the World’s Ugliest Dog in 2013. Walle has two slipped discs in his back that are hopefully going to be repaired once this haunting season is over. The asylum is up and running every Friday and Saturday from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. during the month of October, costing $5. Head down to the asylum this weekend to see how scary this haunted house really is, and to help a good cause.
If you are interested in working at the asylum, all you have to do is show up at 3163 Esplanade at 6 p.m. and they’ll provide you with what you need in order to collect some screams!
