A good time for a good cause is what David Ratliff hopes to achieve at the Haunted Maze in Beaver, Okla. Organized by Ratliff Construction and the Beaver Lions Club, all proceeds will go toward medical bills for two very special young men in Beaver County.
“We are having a benefit for two young men, Chris Lujan and James Akridge,” David Ratliff said. “Last I heard, James was having trouble with his balance, his equilibrium was still a little off. A gravel truck ran through his car within the last two months. Chris Lujan still needs a kidney. The hospital gave him the wrong medication when they gave him his brother’s kidney, so he rejected the kidney.”
For $9 a person, all interested in a good old fashioned Halloween scare can join the fun. However, Ratliff said, children under the age of nine must have an adult present to accompany them through the Haunted Maze.
The Haunted Maze opened Thursday evening, raising more than $500 for the cause, Ratliff said. The fun will continue today and Saturday night from 9:30 p.m. to midnight.
“We are hoping to earn some money so we can divide it up evenly between Chris and James,” he said. “I had fun doing it, we were going to do it anyway. It is going to be a good time.”
