On December 12th, nearly 500 joined Woodley House for our 16th Annual Movie Benefit and a grand time was had by all! This year we presented a very special advance screening of Universal Pictures’ Les Miserables which attracted many Washingtonians, as well as fans from as far away as Australia! We were honored to present our esteemed Donald A. Brown Rose Award to noted author (‘An Unquiet Mind”), educator and mental health advocate, Kay Redfield Jamison, PhD for her strong leadership in mental health recovery and longtime support of Woodley House.
The evening began with a buffet reception at Pulpo, a new restaurant across the street from the Uptown Theater where the movie was screened. NBC chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell was our master of ceremonies and presented the Rose Award to Dr. Jamison. All proceeds from the event went to fund Woodley House’s programs for the mentally ill. For a write up and photos from Washington Life, go to:
