LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — A haunted attraction in Lafayette is giving people a scare for good cause.

Evil on Erie is put on with the help of dozens of community volunteers.

This is the second year for the attraction. All proceeds from the attraction are donated to HomesteadCS – a nonprofit organization that offers education and consulting assistance to all homeowners and potential homeowners regardless of income.

Organizer Jim Slaven said the benefits of helping to keep people in their homes outweighs the fright.

“All the money we raise through this haunted house is to help families in our community stay in their homes,” Slaven said. “HomesteadCS does foreclosure prevention. They do reverse mortgages. They have a new lending program for people that are low income and need a little help when an emergency hits. They are a great organization.”

Evil on Erie is located at 1910 Wilson St. in Lafayette.

It’s open from 7 p.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturday and from 7-10:30 p.m. Monday.

Tickets are $15 or you can pay $22 for a fast pass.
