CHARLESTON, SC -
Monday September 30 at 3 p.m., Boone Hall Plantation is hosting a special corn maze ribbon cutting to mark the 20th anniversary of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. This year's eight-acre corn maze features a tribute design to commemorate the occasion.
"We are excited to be able to partner with the Komen Lowcountry Foundation to help further raise awareness for this cause and those who it affects," said Willie McRae, co-owner of Boone Hall Plantation. "This year's maze is quite impressive and we're sure those who visit will have a great time, while also helping support a noble cause."
In addition to the ribbon cutting, Boone Hall's corn maze will be filled with individuals dressed in pink shirts and gloves to really make that visual pop. Boone Hall and Susan G. Komen are asking any breast cancer survivors, their friends, family and supporters to come out to the corn maze from 1:30 - 2p.m. on Monday in order to participate.
Representatives from the Komen Lowcountry Foundation and Boone Hall staff will be on hand to jointly participate in the ceremony. In addition, Boone Hall is encouraging breast cancer survivors, their family members, friends, and supporters to take part in the ceremony. The plan is to fill the ribbon portion of the maze with people wearing pink T-shirts and gloves that will make a spectacular visual for the press preview flyover for media covering the maze. Participants need to arrive at the Boone Hall pumpkin patch area between 1:30 p.m.- 2 p.m. Complimentary pink T-shirts and gloves will be provided for each participant.
The enormous eight-acre corn maze, which is the mainstay of the Boone Hall Pumpkin Patch each fall, will be displaying a design that pays tribute to the milestone anniversary for this annual race, which highlights breast cancer awareness in the South Carolina Lowcountry.
The Race For The Cure Corn Maze will be open every day October 1 through November 2 as part of Boone Hall's annual fall festival which draws visitors of all ages from all over the state with a variety of fall attractions, events, activities, and of course, pumpkin patch fun.
Hours of operation for the Boone Hall Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze will be Monday through Saturday 9 a.m.-6 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m.- 6 p.m. Admission will be $8 for ages 3 and up Monday-Thursday and $10 Friday through Sunday. Children two and under are admitted free with an accompanying adult. A portion of the proceeds from this event will go to support the efforts of the Lowcountry Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
