Several stars turned out for an annual fundraiser for Paul Newman’s children’s charity, which was bittersweet this year as a result of his recent passing. The event was held in San Francisco on Monday night, and benefited The Painted Turtle, a camp for children with life-threatening illnesses, which Newman started in 1999.
Danny Glover announced to the crowd, "We expected Paul to be with us and so this kind of turned into kind of a tribute. This is the first time we are doing this without Paul - there is a void there, without a doubt."
Tom Hanks added, "Paul was a member of the ensemble more than anything else. He didn’t care about the hierarchy, but he was a guy, quite frankly, who should have won the Nobel Peace Prize."
Newman donated more than $250 million to charities over the years, and definitely will not be forgotten.
