Local businesses are working together to raise funds for non-profits in Macon County after a year of difficulties due to the COVID19 pandemic.
2020 was a difficult year for non-profits serving Macon County — in a year where their services have been needed more than ever, fundraising was more challenging than ever. In an effort to help the non-profits that go above and beyond to help those most in need in our community, Servpro of Nantahala is teaming with Macon County Parks & Recreation, The Southern Scoop News, Russell Hawkins, Edwards Jones Financial Advisor, John Hamlin State Farm, and Aaron Garrett Land Surveying to host a Mother’s Day Monster Madness fundraising event.
The drive-thru event will be held at Parker Meadows Recreation Complex where vehicles will drive-thru and encounter aliens, dinosaurs, zombies, and other monsters roaming about. From the car, monster hunters can use their own nerf guns and bullets to hunt the monsters trolling Parker Meadows. A restocking station being haunted by the Russell Hawkins Edward Jones team will ensure hunters have all the nerf ammo needed to finish the hunt.
100% of proceeds from the event will be donated to participating nonprofits.
Participating non-profits and organizations include Macon New Beginnings, Franklin High School FFA, Macon County Animal Services, Habitat for Humanity, and the Macon County Public Library. The non-profits, as well as additional volunteers, will be stationed around Parker Meadows with different monsters haunting the parking lots. Participants will enter at the main entrance of Parker Meadows, where tickets can be purchased. The haunted trail meanders through Parker Meadows before exiting on toMaxwell Home Road.
The cost for the monster hunt is $10 per vehicle with additional nerf bullets available for purchase at the beginning of the event for $1 a bag.
