2018 Newtown Great Pumpkin Challenge

Thank you for visiting our Event page! This year we're hosting an event to benefit the brave and beautiful campers and their families at The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp.

Founded in 1988 by Paul Newman, The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp is dedicated to providing "a different kind of healing" to seriously ill children and their families through a variety of year-round programs. The Camp delivers fun, friendship and a healthy dose of mischief through its signature summer program and weekend sessions at the Camp facility in Ashford, CT as well as outreach to hospitals, clinics and communities across the Northeast. All services are free of charge.

Please help us reach (or even exceed!) our goal. With your generosity, we can all share in the joy of knowing that we are helping to provide "a different kind of healing" to children and families coping with serious illness.

Pumpkins will be collected at Trinity Church (36 Main Street, by the flagpole) on the following days:

Sunday, October 28th: 10 AM - 4PM
Tuesday, October 30th: 3 PM - 6 PM
Wednesday, October 31st (Halloween): 2 PM - 5 PM

You can also drop off any time after the scaffolding goes up (Saturday, October 27th) and donate online using this website.

Thanks for supporting this wonderful fundraiser!
