Loss of One in the Pursuit of the Common Good

Sadly, we lost Paul Newman.  The actor turned entrepreneur, turned philanthropist left quite a mark on the world.  For the last 25 years, Newman's Own generated $250 million in proceeds to thousands of world-wide charities.

Newman's Foundation created the Hole in the Wall Gang Camps the leading global family of camps for children with life-threatening illnesses.  Central Ohio's own Flying Horse Farms will become the Midwest's first Hole in the Wall Camp in 2010.

Paul Newman's legacy of "Shameless Exploitation in the Pursuit of the Common Good" will live on.  Our world is a better place because of him.  He will be missed!
