Woodley House–Washington DC’s Oldest Residential Facility providing mental health services–is hosting its 12th Annual Woodley House Movie Benefit with Special Screening of Jim Carrey’s movie, “Yes Man,” this Wednesday December 17 (that’s tomorrow night, people!) Tickets to are only $100 for two people at The Uptown Theater at 3426 Connecticut Avenue NW. Tickets can be purchased online at Woodley House.
I know that it may seem difficult in these times to justify $50 on a movie ticket, but it is important to realize that although times difficult for everyone this year, the poor economy is hardest on those that are often left on the margins of society. Woodley House has been providing residential mental health treatment for the DC community for over 50 years. Attending the movie benefit would turn something routine–going to the movies–into an act of giving during this holiday season. Tickets to the benefit make great gifts and through generous support Woodley House will be able to provide for the D.C. community all year long.
By the way… if you are new to D.C. and have never been to The Uptown Theater, it is a wonderful old theater, renovated a few years ago. It’s worth the trip and you can get there by the Red Line Metro–it’s about a block from the Cleveland Park stop.
