Good morning & happy Sunday! This day in Disney history, Oct 28th, 2004. "Disneyland held a charity auction to raise funds for the local chapter of the Boys and Girls Club. The prize? A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to become a part of the Haunted Mansion attraction by being "interred" as the honorary "1000th Ghost" to occupy the Haunted Mansion. The winner was Cary "Jay" Sharp (pictured below holding tombstone), a doctor and medical lawyer. Sharp, who hails from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, was given a special midnight "burial" at Disneyland Park on the porch of the Haunted Mansion, at which time his tombstone, which now rests inside the attraction's graveyard in front of the ghostly band, was unveiled. Sharp was presented with a miniature replica of his tombstone and a "Death Certificate," and he officially became a permanent resident of the Mansion. Over 60,000 people visited the online auction by the time the final bid was tallied. "I was stunned when I realized I had actually won," Sharp said. "To see this clever reference to me in this famous attraction - it really is a special honor." Quoted from doombuggies.com . As always, thanks for reading!
