Scaring is Caring

Looking for something spooky to get up to this October? Consider stopping by Saunders Farm’s 7th Annual “Scaring is Caring” event!

This October 6th, Saunders Farm will once again be donating $5 to the Youth Services Bureau to support mental health services for local youths.

Scaring is Caring was established six years ago in the memory of Jamie Hubley, son of Kanata South Councillor Allan Hubley and his wife Wendy. This is a wonderful opportunity to raise both money and awareness in support of youth mental health programming in the Ottawa area.

Once more, my office is sponsoring discounted tickets ($20 instead of $40) and free bus transportation to and from the event. Participants can board the bus at the Goulbourn Rec Complex beginning at 5:30 PM with a scheduled departure time of approximately 6:00 PM (show up early!). Discounted tickets can be purchased on the bus prior to departure (as space permits). Return departure will leave Saunders at 10:00 PM.

Please note that Saunders Farm strongly do not recommend the Night Haunts for children under the age of 10 years old.

I would like to thank Councillor Hubley’s office for organizing this event and Angela and Mark Saunders for their continued assistance in hosting.

I highly encourage all residents to consider making it out and supporting this great cause! For more information, please contact Destini.Mclean@ottawa.ca.
