Toray Celebrates With The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp

North Kingstown, RI — The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp returned to the iconic Tavern on the Green restaurant nestled inside New York City’s Central Park to celebrate its 31st Annual Big Apple Bash on Saturday, November 12th. The event raised $1.8 million to support the Camp’s programs. Toray made a financial contribution to the Camp’s fundraiser and Franco Chicarella, Director of Sales at Toray, joined in the celebration.

More than 450 guests gathered for the bash and enjoyed a bountiful assortment of food and beverages and a variety of activities, performances, music, and dancing. The Camp’s CEO, Jimmy Canton, kicked off the evening by sharing some Hole in the Wall updates. Camper Shariah shared her challenging journey with undifferentiated embryonal sarcoma of the liver and described how Hole in the Wall programs provided her family with community and support. Andrew, a first-time camper, talked about the fun and friendship he found at the Camp this past summer and brought the crowd to their feet with his awesome dance moves.

“We look forward every year to the Camp’s Big Apple Bash, so it was extra special to get together again in person,” says, Chicarella. “The campers are an inspiration and remind us to have a grateful attitude every day. It’s a privilege to be a friend and supporter of The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp.”
