The Season of Giving

"Inspiration beyond your wildest dreams," Robert said of the scene at Double H Ranch, a camp in upstate New York for children with life-threatening illnesses. In the spirit of the holidays, Robert and his Restaurant: Impossible team gave back to the campers and staff at Double H in an extra-special mission.

A Mission of Hope

In talking with director of operations Jacqui Royael and CEO/executive director Max Yurenda, Robert quickly learned that Double H is a camp like few others; Jacqui said the staff maintains a "how can we make it possible for each child" attitude at all times as they offer the children many traditional camp activities.

Oversize Overhaul

While the opportunities for children at Double H are unparalleled, the camp's dining hall was in need of an update, as Max noted, "It's a very dark building." With more than 4,000 square feet of space spread out among four separate areas, this overhaul was the largest the team had ever attempted, and thanks to the generosity of Lexus, there was an increased budget of $50,000 and three days to work.

A Spicy Sip

Not one to shy away from a mission, in true Irvine fashion Robert rose to the occasion when campers challenged him to drink a glass of hot sauce. Much to their amusement, he drowned the drink with a smile.
