Bates Motel Owners Present a check to the American Cancer Society

The Bates family has always supported various charity organizations throughout the year. One of the main charitable groups is the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, held at Penncrest High School this May. For the last 12 years, Anne and Randy Bates have donated time, materials and money to this worthy cause. Last year they hosted the Run for Hope on their farm, and have supported various Relay for Life events throughout the region. Here you see Anne and Randy Bates on the right presenting a check to Kim Wienches of the American Cancer Society at the recent event in Middletown, Delaware County

Bates Motel and Haunted Hayride to Host Livestrong Hope Ride and Challenge Run

The Bates Motel and Haunted Hayride proudly announces we will be the host of the 2011 Hope Ride and Challenge Run benefiting the Lance Armstrong Foundation. This event will take place on October 2nd, 2011 at Arasapha Farm, in Gradyville, PA. Bates Motel will be the starting line and finish line for the bike ride, with a distance of your choice. The Challenge Run will start at the entrance to our famous Haunted Corn Maze. Runners will have to navigate the huge maze, with all the scary obstacles, then run through the Haunted Hayride trail. After leaving the hayride trail, the course will take you over the rolling hills of Arasapha Farm, and past the Christmas tree stands. The run will finish back where it started, just outside the infamous Bates Motel. Food and drinks will be available along with a great picnic area where you can relax with friends and family.

The festival for National Armstrong Day will open at 10:00 AM with family games, challenges, costume contests, crafts, and other family fun activities. Contact Ashley Spurlock at spurlocka@comcast.net for more information and registration.
