The Simon Konover Company and its Team Simon Konover have raised over $115,000 in the 2014 Camp Challenge Ride & Bandit 5K campaign to benefit The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp located in Ashford, Connecticut.

In addition to the The Simon Konover Company's corporate sponsorship, over 60 organizations and individuals donated to the Team Simon Konover 2014 fundraising campaign. The total results of this fundraising campaign will be available in the coming weeks.

The Simon Konover Company’s involvement with The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp began in 1987 when Simon Konover donated the construction management services as he constructed the original Camp facilities. Since that time, The Simon Konover Company, as well as the Konover and Coppa families, have demonstrated an ongoing commitment to the Camp as an active sponsor of the Camp’s Annual Fandango Benefit Gala, the Space & Aviation Day, as well as the Camp Challenge Ride. In addition, Jane Konover Coppa is a member of the Camp’s Board of Advisors.
