LAS VEGAS - The haunted house in the parking lot of Southern Hills Hospital is not to be missed. Not only will visitors get a good scare, but the entrance fee goes to a good cause.
Money raised will benefit the Public Education Foundation, the Shade Tree Shelter and an orphanage in Taiwan.
Twenty-six-year-old Jacob Bailey is the brains and architect behind the haunted house. His volunteers include a special group of students from Molasky Junior High School.
Sixteen-year-old Andrew Hernandez says he loved building the attraction.
“It gives me a satisfaction to get up every morning and go to work,” he said.
Construction started eight months ago. Hernandez and 14-year-old Ezra Alvarez-Key did the majority of the work.
“We usually stayed up till 1 a.m., building eight foot walls, gelling them together, trying to stand them up. That was probably the hardest work,” he said.
