Leifer Properties Welcomes Paul Newman’s Hole in the Wall Foundation to Westport

Leifer Properties

Newman's Own - All Profits to Charity

The Hole in the Wall Foundation, founded by former Westporter Paul Newman, funds and supports camps for seriously ill children around the world. It recently relocated into Leifer Properties’ building located at 228 Saugatuck Avenue. The Foundation, which had previously been based in New Haven, CT, found its ideal new headquarters location overlooking the water at Indian River Green, a minute walk from the Westport Metro North Station and steps to the I-95 access point. Leifer Properties customized the space, with perimeter window walls in every office and a large Boardroom, for their requirements, including the installation of a full kitchen, and up to date IT facilities. This tenancy brought full circle the relationship between the two organizations, as Roger Leifer worked with Paul Newman four years ago building Newman’s first and only restaurant, The Dressing Room, adjacent to the Westport Playhouse. Last year the Hole in the Wall Camps helped out over 400,000 children around the world, bringing joy and hope to those suffering from cancer and other serious illnesses.
