continued “We asked the Salvation Army, what’s a good goal?” Hussak said. “They said maybe $1,000. We decided to do $2,000, $1,000 each. We think that’s a good goal.”
In the future, both men hope to see the show move to a new location.
“Our ultimate goal is to bring it indoors in future years to a different venue, a Destiny or a Burdick,” Scicchitano said.
“We think we could reach a lot more people that way,” he said.
But this year, the focus is on raising as much money as possible for the Salvation Army.
“In the past, the idea was, build it and see who comes,” Scicchitano said. “Now, we do what we can, not to have the best house, but, as Chris said, to see how we can raise more money for the Salvation Army. It’s a definite change in focus.”
Regardless of how much money is raised, both men and their families are grateful to the community for their support, and they’re happy to be able to use their particular strengths to help a worthy cause.
“It’s a cool way to use our gifts and talents,” Hussak said.
