The 2017 Maze raised $27,670, which was donated directly to the Rocky Hill-based Connecticut chapter of the ACS. With the addition of the 2017 donation, Lyman Orchards has now contributed over $566,000 to the ACS.
Lyman Orchards' Executive Vice President John Lyman III stated, "Every year, the annual Corn Maze attracts thousands of visitors who come ready to explore and traverse the farm. By donating a portion of the ticket sales, we and our customers collaboratively support the goals of the American Cancer Society. We are honored to assist the uphill battle that is the cure for cancer and the positive strides being made by organizations such as ACS."
Lynn Kipphut, Community Manager at the Relay for Life at American Cancer Society, added: "The American Cancer Society is thrilled about the community partnership we have with Lyman Orchards. Raising funds to cultivate research and education, while reducing the pain and suffering caused by cancer, is key in executing the American Cancer Society's mission of saving more lives. Lyman Orchards' continued support and generosity have been crucial to our community goals, bringing us steps closer to making an impact in the lives of cancer patients."
