WACO, TX (KXXV) -

It's easy to find a haunted house on Halloween, but it's harder to find one that's looking to scare you for a good cause.

It's the 5th anniversary of Haunted Wolf Hollow, a backyard haunted house in Waco that's raising money for breast cancer research.

What started out as front yard decorations has become a bone-chilling tradition for George Foley's family and friends who serve as monsters in the haunted house.

"The payments? Easy! Pizza and candy," George joked.

This haunted house has a little something for everyone. There's zombies, dolls, clowns and much more. George said it took him about 2 months to set the whole place up.

"There's going to be pitch-dark, total darkness to country hillbillies, to Texas Chainsaw Massacre," George said.

These thrill seekers live for scaring their neighbors, but it's their giving hearts that make this annual event so special.

"It's a good cause and we need all the help we can get to stop it," Scott Foley, George's uncle, said.

All ticket sales will be donated to Susan G. Komen Central Texas to help find a cure for the disease that touches too many lives.

"We've all got the personal reasoning," said Marla Parker, George's friend. "I just received a phone call that one of my friends has got breast cancer now, so yea, it's all very close to heart."

George said the Haunted Wolf Hollow has raised nearly $2,000 over the years. He hopes this will be their biggest year yet.

"We raised $920 last year and we're hoping to break $1,000 this year. We're crossing our fingers," George said.

It's just $2 to get into Haunted Wolf Hollow, which will be open from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Oct. 31.

Haunted Wolf Hollow is located at 1019 N 23rd St, Waco, TX 76707.
