Binghamton University “Ghost House” to raise money for Charity

2009-10-23

The Binghamton University Japanese Association (BUJA) and Student Association Programming Board (SAPB) will host the 2009 “Ghost House” program from 5-10 p.m. Saturday, October 31, in the Mandela Room of the University Union.

The program first started as a Halloween celebration for students, but has evolved and is now an open event to bring together students and the local community. BUJA and SAPB have sent out invitations to schools across Broome County in the hopes of including more K-12 students in the festivities.

Activities including Jack-o-lantern carving, costume contests, live music, and dancing.  A portion of the proceeds will support the Jifahamu Kenya Foundation (JFK), an organization that strives to rid the world of oppression and help underdeveloped nations through education and public awareness.

Tickets are $3 for students and $5 for the general public and can be purchased. Entry price includes unlimited entry into the Entailment Room and the Ghost House. Tickets can be bought for only entrance to the Ghost House and are $2. Re-entry is allowed for $1.50.
