Some nice pics in this article from those involved.

by Degen Pener "After Nell Newman — daughter of Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward — started her foundation in 2010, she gave away up to a half-million dollars a year to causes that support her vision of a more sustainable and just world. She also helped direct more than $40 million in giving during the course of more than two decades as the founder of Newman's Own Organics, a licensee of the Newman's Own brand that her father co-founded (with writer and editor A.E. Hotchner) in 1982. But when Newman's Own and its president and CEO Bob Forrester chose not to renew the license in 2015 — against Nell's desires — she was left without a job or a means to fund her giving. Donations from the Nell Newman Foundation have since declined to a few tens of thousands a year."

Sounds like his daughter has a heart of gold. Quite beautiful, too. Hope it surpasses the record.
