LAUREL, MS. (WDAM)- A Pine Belt haunted house aims to gives it's visitors a good scare while raising funds for a local breast cancer awareness group.

The House of a Thousand Psychos in Laurel features lots of scary props, fake blood and scenes from both classic and modern horror films.

And while haunted houses are an October tradition so is breast cancer awareness month. To help the Pink Ribbon Fund, which provides local breast cancer patients with financial help, the House of a Thousand Psychos is letting folks destroy a pink car for a price.

For five dollars on Saturday, October second, people can give three whacks to the car with a sledgehammer. The haunted house is also selling merchandise to benefit the cause. Brandi and Curtis Lowery created the House of a Thousand Psychos.

Brandi Lowery said, "We actually had A-1 Graphics in Petal donate the wonderful shirts and the hats and so every single penny of that goes straight to Susan Light at the Pink Ribbon Fund, and that will help especially in Laurel that will help beat breast cancer."

The opportunity to destroy the pink car for a good cause is this Saturday from three to five PM. The House of a Thousand Psychos is located at 2511 Hwy 15 North in Laurel. They are open Wednesday through Saturday nights.
