Our 18th Movie Benefit “UNBROKEN” Click Here for more information or to purchase ticket
Woodley House is excited to announce that our 18th Annual Movie Benefit will present a very special, pre-release screening of Universal Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ UNBROKEN on Wednesday, December 17th at the AMC Loews Uptown Theater. Based on the best-selling book by Laura Hillenbrand (Seabiscuit), it is directed by Angelina Jolie. UNBROKEN tells the true story of Louis Zamperini – USC class of 1940 and member of the US Olympic Team at the Berlin Olympics – who joined the military to fight in World War II, was shot down over the South Pacific and endured 2 years in a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp … but through sheer determination, survived and triumphed to make it home. It should be a wonderful film and we so hope you can join us.
Our Master of Ceremonies will be Doreen Gentzler of NBC4 News and she will present the Woodley House Rose Award to the Morris & Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation for their history of philanthropic leadership and generosity to Woodley House and our Washington, DC community at large. The evening will begin with a buffet reception at Spices Restaurant, before crossing the street to the Uptown theater for the screening. This is our only major fundraiser of the year and all proceeds go to support our programs of housing and support services for men and women recovering from mental illness.
