Celebrate Newman's Legacy, Help His Camp

It's not a Hole in the Wall if Julia Roberts, Robert Redford, Yo-Yo Ma, Jerry Seinfeld and James Taylor all show up to party. It's a celebration of Paul Newman's legacy. 

Joanne Woodward will host "A Celebration of Paul Newman's Hole in the Wall Camps," a star-studded evening to honor the actor and late Westport resident. The honorary chairs are Oscar winners Robert Redford and Julia Roberts.   

Newman founded the first Hole in the Wall Camp 20 years ago.  "In 1988, the dream of opening a camp for children with serious medical conditions became a reality," according to the camp Web site. 

It is now the world's largest family of camps for children with serious medical conditions with 10 camps around the world.

You can check it out on Monday, June 8 at 7 p.m. at New York's Avery Fisher Hall, Lincoln Center. You can opt for an individual performance-only ticket for $50 to $250, or a benefit ticket package ($25,000 to $50,000).  

All the money collected goes to the Hole in the Wall Camps Foundation.
