In Memory Of…

Founding Board Member John Hotchkis

On December 14, 2017, The Painted Turtle lost one of its Founders and Board members, John F. Hotchkis. John was a stellar Founding Board member who came to The Painted Turtle through his longtime friend, adventure sidekick, and even stage performance partner Paul Newman. Yep, John performed alongside Paul in many of the early Hole in The Wall Gang Camp Gala’s. Touched by the magic of that camp, John helped to bring that same magic and life-changing gift of camp to the children on the west coast through The Painted Turtle. We are incredibly thankful for the legacy of generosity he has left for the children and families served at The Painted Turtle.
