Paul Newman Gives $35,000 to Westport Historical Society

The Westport Historical Society has received a contribution of $10,000 from Paul Newman and an additional contribution of $25,000 through the Paul Newman Fund at the Fairfield County Community Foundation and Newmans Own, the group announced today.

It said both gifts will be used in support of the SocietyҒs mission of preserving, presenting and celebrating the history of Westport.

As longtime Westport residents, Newman and his wife, Joanne Woodward, have shown their commitment over many years to the Societys active role in the community, an announcement said.

ғThe WHS is extremely grateful for this substantial gift,” said Denise Torv, WHS executive director. “Such a vote of confidence renews our energy as committee members, staff, directors and volunteers create programs and activities of the highest and most diverse caliber possible.

She added, We are also delighted that in addition to their generous financial contribution, both Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward expressed their personal appreciation and wishes for our continued success which their gift will certainly help to ensure.Ӕ
