The Colten Cowell Memorial Crime Fighting Cave is a 5,000-square-foot homage to the television shows of yesteryear and also serves as a place where families in crisis can spend a few carefree hours laughing and making wonderful memories.

The cave is also home to a state-of-the-art replica of the 1966 Batmobile. Guests are all permitted a ride in the car, and nominated children are driven by their own parents. Nominated children are also granted the fun and honor of presenting checks to charities that have been if help to them.

To date, the program has hosted 130 families and given close to $400,000 to about 90 different charities. Next, the foundation had plans to build a permanent 20,000-square-foot cave that will be able to help a larger number of charities.
