(ABC 6 News) -- Some are using Halloween as an opportunity to raise money and awareness for local causes.
The 4th Annual Boo Fest was held on Saturday at Century High School in Rochester. The Halloween themed carnival had activities for toddlers and middle schoolers.
Proceeds from ticket sales and the silent auction will go to the Rochester Public Schools Foundation. The organization raises money for grants for teachers and students, "Another thing we do with Rochester Public Schools Foundation is to raise money for some scholarships for kids who may not otherwise be looking at college or secondary education. It's sort of an incentive to say, 'Hey, we believe in you'" said Melissa Amundsen who is president of the Rochester Public Schools Foundation.
This year organizers say they hope to raise $10,000.
