What makes the Travelers Championship so special and important is its true purpose – helping to support charities throughout our community. The tournament’s mission of giving back has had a direct impact on more than hundreds of nonprofit organizations, including The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, which serves children and families coping with cancer and other serious illnesses. The Travelers Championship is proud to be a PGA TOUR event, which donates 100% of net proceeds each year to nonprofit organizations throughout New England. In 2020, the Travelers Championship generated $1.6 million for more than 150 charities throughout the region. The tournament has contributed more than $44 million to the local community since its inception in 1952.
Founded in 1988 by Paul Newman, The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp provides “a different kind of healing” to more than 20,000 seriously ill children and family members annually – all completely free of charge. For many of these children and families, Hole in the Wall provides multiple Camp experiences throughout the year.
“The Travelers Championship has provided Hole in the Wall with a local and national platform to share our story, allowing us to build greater awareness for our year-round programming,” said Camp CEO Jimmy Canton. “Thanks to this partnership, we have been able to expand our programming to serve more seriously ill children while also providing deeper levels of care to their families.”
Each summer, The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp provides weeklong camping experiences that seamlessly incorporate round-the-clock medical care so that campers can participate in horseback riding, fishing, archery and other activities. In the process, the campers discover that they can do more than they ever thought possible while also forming friendships with other children just like them. Throughout the rest of the year, the Camp hosts family weekends, makes daily hospital outreach visits in more than 40 locations across the Northeast and delivers programming right to camper homes and hometowns.
