The Hole In The Wall Gang Camp Receives Generous Donation from CMGMA

CMGMA continues to support The Hole In The Wall Gang Camp with proceeds from the Annual Golf Outing.  Over $87,000 has been donated to the camp since 2006.

The Hole In The Wall Gang Camp was founded in 1988 by Paul Newman with one simple premise in mind, that every child, no matter their illness, could experience the transformational spirit and friendships that go hand in hand with camp. Paul Newman, while a successful actor, was also a visionary with the heart of a child. His personality, playfulness and mischievousness are infused within every corner of the Camp, from the pirate flag he raised on the tree house to the days he spent on the lake fishing with campers. With unobtusive expert medical care, it was Paul's dream that Camp would provide seriously ill children with a fun-filled experience defined by compassion, laughter and acceptance.

Thank you to everyone involved with CMGMA who supported this great cause.
