Elaborately Decorated Halloween House in Lafayette, Louisiana Open for Viewing for Free Starting on Oct. 7
Our buddy and former UL Ragin' Cajuns baseball great Phil Devey is back at it again.
For several years, Devey and his family have transformed their Lafayette home's exterior into an elaborately decorated Halloween display that families love visiting.
It has gotten so big over the years, that the Devey family has given it a name -- "Fright House on Lafleur."
In the past, Phil's creations have included 12-foot skeletons, 3-headed dogs, motorcycle-riding witches, and walk-through cemeteries along with lasers, lights, music, and projection shows.
While it's free to view "Fright House on Lafleur," Phil has used the opportunity to raise money for worthy non-profit organizations.
This year, Grizzly Commercial Roofing is teaming up with Healing House for the annual Halloween fundraiser.
Healing House is a non-profit organization that provides a safe place for children of Acadiana to find support and comfort during their grief journeys after losing a loved one. All of their services rendered are free and facilitated by mental health professionals and trained volunteers.
Viewers who go by the house are asked to scan the QR code located on the property to make their donations.
Phil Devey, who is also Co-Owner and Director of Business Development at Grizzly Commercial Roofing, had this to say about the opportunity to help out:
This is my way of doing something I love while also raising money for a great cause. Healing House's mission really resonates with me, so I am more than happy to help bring awareness and raise money for such a selfless organization here in Acadiana. I am looking forward to putting up this year's display -- I think it is going to be my best one yet.
Grizzly Commercial Roofing is matching up to $2,500 in donations towards Healing House.
This year's "Fright House on Lafleur" will be up beginning Saturday, October 7, and run through October 31st at 116 Lafleur Circle in Lafayette, Louisiana.
