Team Garber's Charity Haunted House


In February 2013 when I fell ill with what I thought was food poisoning. After a few days in the hospital and a number of tests I found out that I only had 26% total kidney function. It came as a total surprise. I'm not sure if I was born that way or if my kidneys dissipated over time.

That year my wife and I decided to raise money and awareness for The Kidney Foundation of Canada. As new residents to Milton and parents of two Young children We decided to decorate our home for Halloween and collect donations. That year we managed to raise $500. Since then our home has become a well-known local community event known as Team Garber's Charity Haunted House. 

On Halloween we go all out and build an extension out of wooden pallets on our driveway and create a haunted maze and garage walk through filled with zombies, skeletons, animatronics and volunteers in gory makeup. Last year was our best turnout with around 1500 visitors.  I am proud to say that We have raised roughly approximately $40,000 in 6 years for the foundation and look forward to adding to that total again this coming year. I could not have done this without the dedication and hard work of my family, friends and the support of the Town of Milton.
