The last week in October, the Walter family sponsored a haunted forest fundraiser event for the Snow Canyon High School Drill Team and Wyatt Craven, Michelle Walter’s five year old nephew, who was diagnosed with leukemia in April.

The joint fundraiser was held at the six-acre Walter family farm in Santa Clara, Utah, and was supported by more than 80 volunteers. Volunteers helped in many capacities by donating props, creating scenes, staffing the haunted forest, helping with tech need and disassembling the scenes when the event was over. The haunted forest included a large vortex tunnel, pallet maze, cemetery, a hay room with multiple exit doors and a clown room, complete with a chainsaw wielding clown that chased attendees to the haunted forest exit.


Over 1,200 people went through the haunted forest in the four days it was open. Between ticket sales and generous donations, the event raised $20,000. Michelle Walter, organizer of the event said, “When I started planning this fundraiser back in August, I didn’t know Wyatt would pass away one week before the event. Not only did our community come together, but Wyatt’s family was there. His brothers went through the haunted forest more than a dozen times, and Wyatt’s Dad and Mom and sister participated in the event. During a time of profound grief, it was good for us to be together doing something in memory of Wyatt. My brother and his family are so thankful for the funds we raised and the outpouring of love they felt from our community. A special thanks to all our volunteers and to everyone who came through the haunted forest. It was a success because of you.”


ERA Brokers Consolidated sponsored the fundraiser by printing signs and flyers and purchasing 70 tickets for agents and clients that wanted to attend the event.
