on October 22, 2008

Scottsdale, Ariz. - Harkins Theatres’ tribute to screen legend, Paul Newman raised nearly $3,300 for The Painted Turtle: A Hole in the Wall Camp in California.

Harkins presented the Paul Newman film festival at Harkins Valley Art in downtown Tempe, Ariz. earlier this month (Oct, 10 - 16), and showcased the screen legend’s finest films, including, Cool Hand Luke, The Hustler, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Verdict, Slap Shot, Road to Perdition, and The Sting.

"Paul Newman was one of the finest actors of the twentieth century. He dedicated his life and his career to giving back to the community, and his contributions will be felt for decades to come,” said Dan Harkins, Owner of Harkins Theatres. “We are thrilled at the success of this film festival and are proud to help contribute to Paul’s charitable legacy.”

Founded in 1988 by Paul Newman, Hole in the Wall Camps are the world’s largest family of camps for children with serious medical conditions. The Painted Turtle is the only multi-disease camp and family care center of its kind on the West Coast. The Painted Turtle provides a life-changing experience to children whose daily struggles often diminish both their desire to be well and their ability to lead a rich, productive life.
