Seven Night of Terror
The Hilton Head Firefighters Association will be hosting a haunted house again this October at Pineland Station, located at 430 William Hilton Parkway on Hilton Head Island. Last year’s haunted house was a huge success, and this year we’re making it even better! Doors will open nightly at 7 p.m. Ticket prices are $10 general admission and $5 for kids 10 and under. This year we are doing a no-scare, lights-on walk through for the faint of heart, on Thursday October 24, which will coincide with Pineland Station’s trick or treat. Tickets are only $5 for this one night, 5-6:30 pm. So if you just want to check out the hard work and design but scares aren’t for you, mark your calendar! Regular pricing and scares start again that night at 7 p.m.
Since the association’s inception, we have granted over $300,000 in cash donations or life safety equipment. Low overhead costs allow us to give back nearly all of the money we raise. In 2012, the HHFA, through the support of our community, was able to donate $40,000 to local charities! The Hilton Head Firefighters’ Association could not do any of this without the continued support and participation from its members. Our community is blessed with a great organization and an amazing group of firefighters, their families and friends. If you think you can handle it, come out and help us raise money for charity!
The Kiwanis Club of Hilton Head Island will host the 29th Annual Chili Cookoff at the Coastal Discovery Museum at Honey Horn, Saturday, October 12 from noon-4 p.m. The popular Chilly Willy Band will provide their unique style of music once again for this rain-or-shine event. Local chili cooks will compete in professional and amateur categories with separate awards for each. In addition, a supervised children’s area with games and activities including a water slide will be provided so that parents can fully enjoy the festivities. Bring bathing suits for the kids.
Purchase advance tickets for $10 at several area locations, including The Coastal Discovery Museum, Burke’s Main Street Pharmacy, Reilley’s South, User Friendly, Honeybaked Ham (Bluffton near Starbucks), Bluffton Pharmacy (Rt. 46 near Post Office) or from any Kiwanis member. Tickets purchased on the day of the event will be $12. Each ticket entitles the holder to unlimited samples of chili. Proceeds from the event benefit The Children’s Center, The Coastal Discovery Museum, Operation R&R, Marine Corps Scholarship Fund, Children’s Memorial Fund and several other youth programs. Beer, wine, soda, hot dogs and ice cream will also be available for purchase.
