27th Annual Beantown Bash
With the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to impede the viability of in-person events through 2021, we are once again forgoing an on-site Beantown Bash celebration at Boston Children’s Museum. The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp is pivoting with a purpose by bringing together its three largest fundraising events – the Beantown Bash, Fandango Benefit Gala and Big Apple Bash – into one unified effort that will culminate with a one-of-a-kind virtual celebration in fall 2021 featuring Hole in the Wall campers, families and celebrity friends.
The pre-recorded virtual celebration will be streamed online and delivered safely and directly into the homes of supporters and there will be a variety of sponsorship, individual and marketing engagement opportunities associated with the festivities. We will be reaching out to generous and longtime Beantown Bash supporters and new Camp friends in late spring with additional virtual event details and all the ways to participate.
We anticipate the return of our on-site Beantown Bash at Boston Children’s Museum in April 2022! With hope on the horizon, Hole in the Wall looks forward to all the future has to hold as we continue to provide “a different kind of healing” in different ways during very different times.

THE 26TH ANNUAL BEANTOWN BASH-APRIL 4, 2020
Due to COVID-19, the 26th Annual Beantown Bash scheduled for Saturday, April 4th at Boston Children’s Museum was canceled. Thanks to the generosity of presenting sponsor Ken’s Foods, Inc. and our Beantown Bash community, more than $1,380,000 was raised to benefit Camp.
The 25th Annual Beantown Bash – April 6, 2019
The silver anniversary of the Beantown Bash was one for the record books, raising $1,578,655 for Camp! Boston Children’s Museum played host once again to 800 supporters ready to celebrate into the warm spring night! Guests were greeted by hometown mascots Wally and Tessie from the Boston Red Sox, Blades from the Boston Bruins and Pat Patriot from the New England Patriots, and went on to enjoy cocktails and mocktails, hors d’oeuvres, culinary stations and desserts around every turn!
The night was packed full of fun as attendees explored all three floors of Museum entertainment. The options were endless, with guests competing in virtual race car simulators, putting their way around 9 mini-golf holes, watching a live interactive LED Robot show in the KidStage Theater and interacting with Amazing Animal Ambassadors. Rock star voices could be heard echoing throughout the Museum as the karaoke stage featured vocal performances by many of our burgeoning pop stars! Guests strutted their best moves on the dance floor as the Bash DJ took requests and spun tunes, and magician and mentalist David Hall stunned his audiences with his amazing slight-of-hand tricks and mindreading. Arts & crafts, face painting and a green screen photo experience rounded out the amusements!
The heated beer garden was home to the very popular craft beer wall, where regional light bites such as lobster rolls were served. Patriots Wide Receiver Matthew Slater signed autographs throughout the evening with fans eager to congratulate him on the team’s recent Super Bowl win! As the festivities came to a close, the silent auction revealed winners of such eclectic offerings as a trip to Bermuda, a football autographed by Tom Brady and JLO concert tickets. Before departing, adults were gifted 25thAnniversary koozie keepsakes and kids left with Camp-branded head lamps to the light way home!
