The 2014 GREENWICH WINE+FOOD FESTIVAL presented by Serendipity supports Paul Newman’s The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp. This organization is dedicated to providing “a different kind of healing” to children and their families coping with cancer, sickle cell anemia and other serious illnesses. All proceeds from the festival’s Kick-Off Party, live and silent auctions and direct donations benefit the organization.
The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp
The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp is a community that celebrates the fun, friendship and spirit of childhood where every kid can “raise a little hell.” Founded in 1988 by Paul Newman, Camp is a community dedicated to providing “a different kind of healing” to children and their families coping with cancer, sickle cell anemia and other serious illnesses. Safety, respect and love guide every moment of this haven for seriously ill children in Ashford, CT. In the words of one young camper, “I love it here. Sometimes you think being so sick gives you limits, but the Camp helps you try anything.” The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp provides this unique healing experience through summer sessions, family weekend programs, and year-round outreach to 22 hospitals and clinics throughout the Northeast, completely free of charge.

Greenwich Parks & Recreation
The Greenwich Parks & Recreation Scholarship Fund provides Greenwich’s youth access to recreational programs. Our scholarship program provides income eligible families exposure to positive experiences, and active lifestyles, as well as opportunities to gain and refine life skills, and to develop positive personal and social assets. Our scholarship fund is completely supported through donations from local businesses, community service organizations, corporations, and individuals. 100% of the donations to this fund go directly to support scholarships for Greenwich’s youth.
We need your help to provide recreation opportunities to children who would not otherwise have the opportunity, please consider a donation today.
