Toray Supports The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp’s 2021 Virtual Fundraising Celebration
The star-studded event raised nearly $4 million for year-round programs that serve seriously ill children and their families.
North Kingstown, Rhode Island — In 1988, Paul Newman founded The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp to provide a “different kind of healing” for children with serious illnesses and their families. In September, the Camp combined its three major annual fundraising events into one free, streaming celebration: “Many Hearts, One Dream: A ‘Hole’ Celebration of Camp Magic.” Campers performed alongside such celebrity friends as Corbin Bleu, Bradley Cooper, Charlie Day, Mary Elizabeth Ellis, Josh Groban, Jake Gyllenhaal, Christopher Jackson, Nikki M. James, David Letterman, Matthew McConaughey, Seth Meyers, Melissa Newman, Al Pacino, Lea Salonga, Kyra Sedgwick, Phillipa Soo, Blair Underwood, Bubba Watson, and Vanessa Williams. Individual and corporate supporters, including Toray Plastics (America), Inc., raised nearly $4 million to help children and their families experience, free of charge, a variety of Camp experiences throughout the year at the facility in Ashford, Connecticut, in more than 40 hospitals and clinics, directly in camper homes and communities, and through other outreach activities across the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic.
“We at Toray are honored to be a friend of The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp and grateful that we were able to gather virtually,” says Chris Voght, General Manager, Torayfan® Division. “We are living in a very challenging time, and it was important to us that we take the time to have some fun and celebrate with the campers and all who attended. It’s our privilege to support such meaningful work.”
