Humboldt Big Brothers Big Sisters, Partners Family Services, JCI Humboldt and Humboldt and District Community Services are all benefiting from the corn maze at Prairie View Properties this summer.

PVP Owner Patti Durand was overwhelmed with the success.

"We want to get people onto our site so my goal which I felt was really aggressive was going to 1,000 on site and then we could raise $3,000 for the charities. The groups themselves told me that if they could get $500 each which is a little bit more than a hot dog sale they would be thrilled."

The attendance at the maze was well above what Durand had envisioned as 2043 people walked through the maze.

"Of that 246 were part of school group tours which was really well supported by the schools divisions. The finally tally, divided equally between the four groups we will be contributing and it was supported by everyone who visited $6,114.25."

Durand said they saw people from Carrot River, Wynyard, Wadena, Regina and even as far as British Columbia.

Besides the man power the four groups provided many other local businesses helped make the maze a huge success including Extra Foods, Holtkamp Technologies, office Experts, Horizon Fertilizers, Richardson Pioneer, Gerwing Ag Ventures, Graphic Ad, Koender's Manufacturing, Ollerich Septic Services, Bella Vista Inn and local farmer Scott Gehlen planted the corn.
