Dunk Tank Challenge Concludes with the Dunking of One Final Board Member

September 16th, 2016

On Thursday, September 8th The Arc of Essex County concluded the Dunk Tank Challenge by sending one final board member into the icy water.  Marnie McNany, who raised the most funds throughout the month of June for the Camp Hope Create Play Capital Campaign, joined Stepping Stones Principal Marvin Leiken for an afternoon of fun with the students.

Just one week later and in partnership with the Township of East Hanover, Camp Hope’s extensive renovations began with the knocking down of the existing buildings. Over the next 6-8 months, the camp grounds will transform with the addition and improvement of indoor and outdoor recreational spaces that will take camp forward for the next 60 years.

The Arc of Essex County continues to strive to reach our $250,000 Create Play goal by December 31, 2016.  Will you help us complete all of the improvements prior to the start of the 2017 camp season?
