"A Celebration of Paul Newman's Hole in the Wall Camps"

I was afraid I was going to have to introduce myself. I'm here because of my loyalty to Paul Newman. Our autobiography? We met many years ago through work and became pals. When we became friends. One thing we agreed upon was that we both took work seriously, but did not take ourselves seriously. We played a lot of games/pranks and had a lot of fun, some of it mythology, some of it truth. As for life in general, we were both aware of the joy of success. Along the way, he ad the chance to follow his passions, family, salad dressing, and social justice.
Of the many qualities Paul had, his generosity was outstanding. His generosity to his fellow actors, fellow man, and his greatest gift, "The Hole In The Wall Camp".

"Hole In The Wall Campers"

"Paul Newman was the best friend any child who ever got sick could ever have. In 1988-there were 200 children, and now, they are open all over the world, in 39 countries."

"You can leave camp, but camp never leaves you."

"He wanted to give the kids a chance to raise a little hell".

"If every child is treated with kindness, this could be a better world."

One special camper, Steven's, who battled leukemia, stated that the camp is not a journey through a door, yet, it's a hole in the wall."
Performance by Yo Yo Ma.

Performance by Art Garfunkel, "As I Lay Me Down to Sleep",

Performance by Joshua Bell/Kristen Chenoweth, who is reminded why she likes kids, "because I am the same size."

- "Yes, yes, I was in every episode of that show, 'Seinfeld'. I was also a friend of Paul's. He convinced me to eat my first oyster. He could convince you of anything.
-Now, I have three kids of my own. Yes, I was 45 years old when I got married, now I am 55. I love being married. You are focused. You must focus on what you are doing. I wake up ready to answer questions that women have been conjuring up all night long to cataclysmic events that which may or may not occur.
-Being married is like being on a game show, where you are always in the lightning round.
-Details of a conversation we had for 20 minutes at 3am, 8 years ago.
-Many wives complain that their husbands don't listen. Now, I've never heard my wife say this. She may have.
-My wife complains about my tone of voice. 'It's your tone." I thought it was marriage, but apparently it's a musical.
-Tone of voices: When the male pursues the female, we raise our voice 2 octaves higher. (High pitched) Do you want to order some Chinese food? Sounds good.
-The regular tone is not welcome in my house, that's why I'm here at this benefit tonight taking to you.
-Why when women argue do they take on a deep voice, "You always say that I do this and that"
-I saw a couple the other day in Columbus Circle, the husband didn't bring his car to a complete stop, and told his wife to get in, she almost got all of herself in, until he began to accelerate. Marriage. Two people trying to stay together without saying, 'I hate you.' "No human being ever leaves the bathroom floor that wet, don't say that, I could kill you."
-Having three kids is like having a blender and no top to it.
-New Parent, When my daughter was 2 years old, she used to poop and lie about it. 'Poop? I'm not aware of any poop."
Performance by "Take 6".
Bill Clinton: Standing Ovation

"I would like to thank Jim Naughton, and Jerry's laughs for loosening me up. I got this call a few weeks ago that they wanted a surprise guest. I would like to tell a story of a personal encounter I had had with Paul Newman. I first met Paul when I was a penniless law student 39 years ago. 20 years ago when I was on Long Island, Hillary and I went to go visit our friend Liz Robbins. Paul opened "Hole in the Wall" that year when I was a penniless Governor. I saw Camp 20 years ago that first summer it opened, and saw the expansion of it and now soon to the Middle East. I saw a child from Nigeria, and a child from Haiti, who asked me to help her go to law school. A lot of children have a story to tell. We can give them the best today/tomorrow. Paul was profoundly a good man in ways that went beyond. Paul thought doing was more important than talking."
Performance by Harry Connick, Jr: "They can't take that away from me."
"The Way You look Tonight", "I have a VM from Paul on my answering machine, that changed the way I behave with my wife. Paul came backstage one time when I was performing, and just stared at me, he made me feel like crap without even saying anything."
Clips from Paul at the "Hole in the Wall Camps".
Paul and Seinfeld: Paul: "Hello, Jerry.", Jerry: "Hello, NEWMAN."
Performance by James Taylor: "Copperline", "Close your Eyes", and "Shower The People" (with everyone on stage).
