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 learned of The Painted Turtle through his longtime friend, adventure sidekick, and even stage performance partner Paul Newman. John performed alongside Paul in many of the early Hole in The Wall Gang Camp Galas. Touched by the magic of that camp, John helped to bring that same magic to 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.
