Twenty years ago the Double H Ranch was created from the vision of just two men and has now grown to include year-round programming that annually serve over 2,000 children and their families. The Double H Ranch continues to be a demonstration of the commitment and generosity of philanthropist Charles R. Wood and actor Paul Newman. Since the Double H officially opened its doors on July 4, 1993, it has served over 20,000 children dealing with life-threatening illnesses.
Join the Double H as we celebrate 20 years of “Making Dreams a Reality”. The year-long celebration of this milestone will include a look at how the Double H has grown, the lives they have changed, and a thank you ‘Birthday Celebration’ on July 14th for all who have supported our mission for two decades. The celebration will also include unique 20th year merchandise available for purchase, a 20 year staff reunion at the camp and a special camper holiday party in December.
Over the years the Double H has provided children with the fundamental values of acceptance, absolute integrity, hope, and trust as well as the simple joys of childhood. Through the dedication of their Board, staff, volunteers and donors, there’s no telling how many lives the Double H can touch and how many memories they can inspire as we all continue to keep the promise that the Double H Ranch will be here forever.
