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.
