Kate and Alfonso are Barretstown volunteers who are also a married couple. Alfonso has volunteered lots of times and when he met Kate he convinced her to volunteer with him. They have volunteered twice together. For their wedding they asked their guests to make a donation to Barretstown instead of giving them gifts. Alfonso explains their motivation for doing so.
“What happens in Barretstown is truly magical and impossible to describe. When I met Kate, it was super easy to convince her to volunteer at camp and join one of these incredible adventures.
Whenever I arrive at camp, lots of magical memories always start coming back to me. Memories of laughter, friendship and joy! We have volunteered at camp twice together now and we are looking forward to do so again in the future.
Choosing Barretstown to be our charity on our wedding day was a small gesture. It’s our pleasure to contribute to this wonderful initiative that Paul Newman started so many years ago.”
