FUND RAISING AND CHARITIES:
DarkSyde Acres Haunted House is a special event fund-raiser produced by DarkSyde Acres and staffed entirely
by a devoted group of volunteers. From parking assistants to our actors, ticket takers, and attraction
managers, our events and facility functions solely on the efforts of a volunteer staff. Our events and
attractions are staffed completely by local talent and industry professionals and enthusiasts from across the
country…and Canada. Special effect creators and industry vendors in conjunction with professional horror and
attraction actors from far and wide donate their time to build and produce our seasonal events and to help with
our private animal refuge and land conservation efforts.
All profits from our seasonal events go to support the private animal refuge and land conservation efforts of
DarkSyde Acres and the local charitable causes we support. Charities, causes, and organizations DarkSyde has
supported, promoted, and/or donated time and/or financial support to include The Adventure Group of America,
the Litchfield Fire Department, the Michigan State Police Seat Belt Enforcement and Drunk Driving Prevention
Programs, and the Michigan Adopt-A-Highway Program along with many others.
In 2012 DarkSyde Acres produced our first Easter Family Fun Day. Thousands of eggs, dozens of prizes, games,
face painting, and even two mini ponies were all on hand along with a surprise visit from the Easter Bunny.
The event was produced and staffed entirely by volunteers from Blue Moon Ranch, BodyBag Entertainment,
Raven’s Wolf Entertainment, Bansheette Production and Consulting, R&H Enterprises, Wicked Jester Entertainment,
Robbins Photography, and the volunteer staff and family of DarkSyde Acres Haunted House. The egg hunt, games,
prizes, face painting, and visit with the Easter Bunny were all opened to the general public and absolutely free
of charge. Being able to give back to the community for its years of support is one of our greatest rewards.
Events held are produced by industry professionals with over 60 years of combined experience in special effects,
set design, event and attraction design, production, and management, with thousands of hours donated to
charities across the country. Your loyalty and patronage helps to provide us with the resources needed
to make our small contributions back to the environment and to our community.
Contact us if you would like to help or if you have a charitable organization, cause, or event that you

We couldn’t do it without you . . . Thank you for your continued support!
