Major League Baseball pitcher Cole Hamels donates $9.75M mansion to charity

19 Décembre 2017

Texas Rangers pitcher Cole Hamels and his wife are giving their $9.75 million Missouri mansion and land to a Christian camp for children with special needs and chronic illnesses.

Cole and Heidi gifted their 32,000 square foot home, just outside Branson Missouri, to Camp Barnabas, a non-profit that works with individuals with special needs and chronic illnesses, the Hamels Foundation announced last week.

The couple began building the house in 2012 and put it on the market in August before deciding to donate it. It's not known right now if Camp Barnabas plans to incorporate the Table Rock Lake house into their programs (the camp already has a location at Table Rock Lake), or if they have other plans.

Amazon Prime Video app reportedly set all-time tvOS record for early downloads
Amazon Prime Video is the most downloaded Apple TV app ever, and it took only seven days to take that top spot. Considering how many people were clamoring for the app, that's not too surprising.

Hamels said in a news release Friday that he and his wife wanted to help the charity make children's dreams come true. "Seeing the faces, hearing the laughter, reading the stories of the kids they serve; there is truly nothing like it", says Cole.

The mansion is the largest gift in history for the 24-year-old organization, Camp Barnabas.

Jason Brawner, CEO of Camp Barnabas, added to the Hamels Foundation that the organization was "strategically looking for ways to expand our ministry outside of a summer camp". "We have no doubt that this gift will allow us to do just that".
