Trisha Yearwood will be among the artists and celebrities gathering at New York’s Avery Fisher Hall in support of Paul Newman’s Association of Hole in the Wall Camps on April 2nd. ‘A Celebration of Paul Newman’s Dream,’ will feature performances from Trisha, Josh Groban, Paul Simon and additional musical performances with appearance by Jake Gyllenhall and Jimmy Fallon. Paul’s wife, Joanne Woodward, will host the evening.
“This is the legacy of my husband, Paul, and he considered it to be his most important one,” Joanne said. “It is for that very reason that I find this delicate way, in my best manners, to ask friends and supporters to come together to help raise money – it’s about helping the children who need it.”
The Association of Hole in the Wall Camps is a global community of camps and programs for children with serious illnesses and their families. There are 14 member camps worldwide, including eight in the United States, five in Europe and one in Israel, as well as 10 programs in Africa, Asia and South America. Since 1988, more than 350,000 children and families from 50 countries have been served. For more information, please visit http://www.holeinthewallcamps.org.
The 2010 Celebration of Paul Newman’s Hole in the Wall Camps raised more than $3 million with the support of Renee Zellweger, Bette Midler, Bill Cosby, Stevie Wonder, John Mellencamp, Emmylou Harris, Lyle Lovett and many more.
