As Roff Home Reopens, Inaugural Investigation Grants Wish through Make-A-Wish Foundation
On Feb. 10, 2011, the Roff Home reopened its doors with an investigation by Paranormal Generation. To christen the Roff Home's reopening, the group teamed up with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to help grant the wish of a girl with Hodgkins lymphoma, who dreamed of going on a real ghost hunt.
The girl was 13 years old, the same age as Lurancy Vennum when she moved into the Roff Home in 1878, and the group performed their investigation on Feb. 10, 2011, the 133rd anniversary of Lurancy's first day in the Roff Home.
The Roff Home was proud to help make that wish come true as part of the home's focus on helping to bring healing and positivity into the world.
