The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp’s 35th Anniversary Fandango Benefit Gala Celebration

October 30, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp will celebrate its 35th Anniversary this fall at its “Amp Up For Camp: A 35th Anniversary Fandango Benefit Gala”! Legendary actor and visionary philanthropist Paul Newman founded Hole in the Wall in 1988 so children with serious illnesses could just be kids while finding fun, friendship, and hope. Hole in the Wall now provides “a different kind of healing” to thousands of children with serious illnesses and family members annually – all completely free of charge.  


Paul’s innovative spirit, creativity and playfulness remain at the heart of all Hole in the Wall programming. The annual Fandango Benefit Gala tradition that Paul began to support Camp programs has evolved over time, but the touchstone of the festivities remains –a variety show with campers performing musical numbers, families sharing inspirational stories and celebrity friends joining them center stage. This year, the Fandango show returns to Hole in the Wall’s Theater, with a simulcast stream available in Camp’s Dining Hall. Guests will enjoy an afternoon and evening filled with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, food trucks, interactive culinary stations, silent and live auctions, music, and more—all as volunteers, staff, Camp families, friends and supporters commemorate 35 years of Camp magic!
