The Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre is a not for profit organization rooted in the protection and recovery of today’s most innocent and vulnerable – our children. The Centre is comprised of a collective that is driven by the courage to support children, youth, and their families affected by abuse, enabling them to build enduring strength and overcome adversity. We work in a collaborative partnership with the Central Region Children's Services, Alberta Health Services, Alberta Justice, Alberta Education, the Central Alberta Sexual Assault Support Centre and the RCMP. Together we harness our collective courage to provide children with supported recovery. It takes courage and bravery for a child to share their story of abuse, for families to bring their children forward, to believe, to listen without judgement, and to seek justice. Supporting the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre today is an investment in the promise and possibility of a healthy future for our children and our community.

Zed haunted house

From Youth HQ

Date: Tuesday, October 15, 2019
Event: PREVIEW NIGHT – Zed Haunted House
Place: 7414 50th Avenue, Red Deer (Former GoAuto location)
Time: 7:00pm-9:00pm

Once again Red Deer’s Most Fatal Attraction will open its doors for two weeks to entertain all ages during the Halloween season. The 29th Annual Zed Haunted House presented by Border Paving runs from October 16th through October 31st at the former GoAuto location in Red Deer. This year’s theme is “You’re Never Alone in the Dark” and promises to be a scream.

The event runs each evening during the event from 6:00pm to 10:00pm, with special feature evenings throughout the event. General admission is $15 at the door, with priority entry “Spook Pass” admissions available for purchase online for $20. Group passes (minimum 10 attendees) are also available in advance by calling or visiting Youth HQ.

Afternoon matinees, geared to children under 10 years of age, occur on Saturday and Sunday during the event’s run from 1:00pm to 4:00pm. Other feature nights include Freaky Friday (October 18), Date Night (October 19), Friday Fright Night (October 25), the Saturday Spooktacular (October 26), Wicked Wednesday (October 30), and a special trick-or-treat edition on All Hallows Eve (October 31).

Midnight Madness returns again this year, sponsored by CARSTAR Red Deer, on Friday, October 25. Running from midnight-2am, the cast prepares to reopen the Haunted House and ups the scare factor. This show is restricted to attendees 18+, with general admission tickets $20 at the door.

John Johnston, Community Engagement Manager for Youth HQ, says the effort put forth by a team of dedicated volunteers has been incredible. “We wouldn’t be able to put on this event without the countless hours of dedication from our volunteers. Between building walls, painting, character training…you name it. The dedication of some really skilled people has made this a success already.”

Volunteers have been busy building the spectacle since late September. We want to acknowledge the numerous returning sponsors for their continued support, including:

  • Zed 98.9 FM
  • Border Paving
  • True Line Homes
  • SERVUS Credit Union
  • G-Force Graphics
  • Herc Rentals

  • Sunbelt Rentals

Thank you also to the more than 30 other business who are friends and supporters of the event, including the several restaurants who support our cast by providing meals throughout the course of the event.

Looking or something different to do this Halloween?

Volunteer Central and Undercurrent Brewing are teaming for Boo’s + Brews: A Freak-Show Cabaret on October 25, 2019.

The evening is set to include rarely seen in Red Deer circus performers doing freak-show themed acts (when is the last time you saw a contortionist?) an exclusive food and drink menu, raffles, 50/50 and more. This is all in part to help raise funds towards building a thriving community through volunteerism.

Limited tickets are available. Get your friends together to come join us for a disturbingly fun night out unlike anything else being offered in Red Deer. Tickets are just $35. Ticket price gets you 1 drink and hors d’oeuvre, and the creepiest entertainment in town.
