Who We Are
Haunted Calgary began over 25 years ago as a simple get-together between neighborhood children to decorate their community for Halloween, held by the Campbell family. Over the years, the display has grown. With tremendous support from over 100 volunteers, Haunted Calgary evolved into Calgary’s largest walk-through Halloween yard attraction and now we are making the leap to bring the attraction to New Horizon Mall in Balzac, near CrossIron Mills. Over 7,000 people have made a visit to Haunted Calgary an annual Halloween tradition. This year, with greater capacity for guests and an extended show, we anticipate that the attraction will host over 10,000 guests. The attraction caters to guests of all ages, offering a Family Frights Thrill Zone, perfect for young children and those who like a bit of spooky fun without being too scared. However, three brand new attractions will chill the souls of teens and adults: Cesspool, Sanitorium, and Deep Sleep Hotel. The attraction is a social enterprise, building job skills in youth and underserved populations and raising funds for charity thanks to our dedicated volunteers. In the past decade, Haunted Calgary has raised well over $50,000 and 40,000 lbs of food to help our community.
Dear Prospective Sponsor,
We are writing to you regarding exciting sponsorship opportunities for the 2019 Haunted Calgary annual Halloween attraction. It is Calgary’s Halloween tradition. Generous donations from community leaders, such as yourself, make it possible to hold fun-filled events that support and give back to our community. Through our social enterprise structure, 30% of our profits will be donated directly to local charities.
Over the past 10 years, more than 50,000 attendees of all ages have enjoyed the event, raising over 40,000 lb of food for the shelves of the Calgary Food Bank, helping people in need in the community. Over $50,000 was raised for animals in need, an amount which allowed the organizations to spay or neuter over 250 animals. In just seven years, one unspayed female cat and her offspring can produce 420,000 kittens; one unspayed female dog and her offspring can produce 97,000 puppies. What an impact!
We’ve become so popular that this year we have moved to a new location at New Horizon Mall in Balzac, near CrossIron Mills. We will feature three terrifying, brand-new attractions plus a Family Frights Thrill Zone. We are pleased with the generous support of our local newspapers, magazines, television, radio, social networking, and local events websites in helping us promote this year’s event. With their support and word-of-mouth from previous years, we are certain we will surpass 10,000 attendees in 2019.
As a participating sponsor, you can choose your level of sponsorship, as outlined in the Sponsorship Levels page. Simply choose a level, then submit the Sponsorship Form. You will then be invoiced for payment, which can be made by credit card, e-transfer, or cheque. Shortly afterwards, I will contact you for your logo to be included in Haunted Calgary marketing materials and on our website and social media. We will also then arrange any remaining details specific to your sponsorship level, such as arrangements to drop off free tickets. We are also open to creating a custom sponsorship package to meet the needs of your organization.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you for your time and consideration.
