The Egyptian Theatre is looking for volunteers to help with the set-up and tear-down of their annual Amenti Haunted House! Each year, over 3,000 guests attend this scary fun event. An event this big and terrifying calls for many helping hands (and other limbs) and often includes labor intensive work. There are also opportunities to be involved in the actual attraction! If you and your friends, athletic team, sorority/fraternity, or student organization want to take part in this volunteer opportunity, contact Alex Nerad at   

Goodwill Northern Illinois
