MANOR, Texas -- There are two days left for the Scare of a Cure Haunted House in Manor, an event now in its seventh year.

Detective Jarrett Crippin with the Austin Police Department and his wife Norma came up with the idea seven years ago and both decided that money could be raised to fight breast cancer.

So far, Scare for the Cure has raised $100,000 for breast cancer research.

"We're doing a good thing for a good cause and we literally get to scare the pee out of people. It's hard to beat that," said Philip Brogden, one of 1,000 volunteers who worked 10,000 over three months to make the event happen.

This year, Scare for a Cure is located on 15 acres of private property in Manor named "Ghost Town."

The event features three different themes: Ghost Town, which is more family friendly, Boneyard and Fairy Tale Nightmares.

Admission costs anywhere between $5 and $30.

There are two more nights of scare: Saturday, Oct. 26 and Halloween night.
