SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Moose Lodge Number 1550 donated nearly $20,000 to the Children's Hospital at Memorial University Medical Center Wednesday night.

The Moose Lodge hosted their annual haunted house event to benefit the Children's Hospital.

Eric Pearlman, medical director and physician in chief at Memorial, explains why this donation was so special.

"Well, we couldn't do what we do without the money that people like this group raise," he said. "So, the things that we do we wouldn't be able to do to the same level if we didn't have fundraising support from the community, to this is essential to us."

The funds donated will be used to help purchase new equipment and enhance patient programs for children in Savannah and the region.
