How many of you get donated construction help in return for them helping a good cause?

From time to time we may get some donated time from construction contractors during the building phase. We've had a contractor come in on a few occasions to cut open doorways through clay tile block walls. It works out nicely also as the contractor has a better understanding of the structural integrety of the building and has a final opinion on opening up a wall or if additional support would be required.

As far as gereral construction we take care of the framing ourselves.

We have also had electricians in the past that have helped with setting up power to concession and makeup trailors.

We usually do all the work ourselves. We do our haunts indoors and generally we get a building donated to us for the 3 months that we need it. Our haunt raises money for local breast cancer patients and it is surprisingly difficult to get people to donate time and services to us.
