RVA Krampusnacht is proud to participate in a toy drive for Scares That Care, a 501(c) charity organization that is dedicated to uniting horror fans to help sick children and women fighting breast cancer.

Along with Scares That Care we are proud to partner with Red Vein Army for our toy drive and other spooky events. Look them up for their Red Vein Escape Rooms and the Red Vein Haunted House running every Friday and Saturday night in October at the Hanover Vegetable Farm!

Krampusnacht draws near! The word is spreading:
