Image Credit: Ron Galella/WireImage.comIt’s been two years since Paul Newman passed away, but the legacy he built on- and off-screen continues to thrive. I can’t help but think of him every time I lose a game of pool (often), eat a hard-boiled egg (occasionally), or smell my office neighbor’s microwaved popcorn (daily! Close your door, snack fiend!). Over the years, so much of that popcorn fortune has gone to Newman’s Hole in the Wall Camps, which have provided free life-altering fun for children across the world with serious medical issues. Tomorrow night at New York’s Lincoln Center, Bill Cosby, Meryl Streep, and Stevie Wonder will join a collection of entertainers, including Newman’s widow, Joanne Woodward, as they honor Newman’s charity efforts with “A Celebration of Paul Newman’s Hole in the Wall Camps.” If you’re in Manhattan looking for fun — or you’re simply out of salad dressing — you should check it out.
