Town of Plymouth, NY (WBNG Binghamton) A Chenango County family brings people together for screams, scares and to raise money for cancer.

The tenth annual Rogers Haunted Hill kicked off Friday night in the town of Plymouth.

The indoor and outdoor haunted house is 100 percent homemade and takes about seven weeks to prepare. It's full of clowns, spiders, goblins and even chainsaws.

More than 40 volunteers help set up, scare and tear down the Halloween staple.

Beverly Rogers started the event for town of Plymouth families.

"We decided to keep it so it was family orientated around here. So if it is a family of four they can afford to come," Rogers said. "We do get a lot, people come from all over."

The 15-room haunted house takes the fearless about 15 minutes to go through, and on average sees about 1,000 people over the weekend.

Scaring is the number one priority of Rogers Haunted Hill, but a portion of the proceeds go to a cause close to cancer research.

Roger's daughter-in-law has been battling cancer on and off for the past two years. She is currently in the hospital.

Roger's Haunted Hill is at 312 Hopkins-Crandall Road. The scares resume Saturday at 7:00 p.m. and last all night.
