Maria Gomez, Director of Annual Giving at the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp said "The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp was started in 1988 by Paul Newman, and we serve seriously ill children and their families."
Andrea Keefe, Development Associate of Annual Giving at the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp said "100% of our services provided are free of charge to our families. No insurance company is ever charged so in order to be able to provide for those services, we need donors."
Proceeds from the three day festival will benefit the Camp and help campers do things they never thought they would be able to do.
Keefe said "It gives them a chance to be normal. So many times they are isolated in hospitals, they are missing school, they are not able to play on sports teams and so camp is that outlet for them. They get to go rock climbing, they can ride on a horse or go swimming, boating and fishing, there is something for everyone."
Gomez added "These are children who are so medically fragile and have been told no and have been restricted in what they can do. When they come to camp, we say raise a little hell. We say have some fun, do what you didn't think you could do and just dream the big dream and you'll experience a world of possibilities."
