by Lindsay Sustarsic · December 14, 2012

    On Wednesday night, philanthropists from around the district came to AMC Loews Uptown Theater to support Woodley House, the 54 year old DC program that helps people with severe mental illness. Guests were treated to a reception at Pulpo restaurant and a special advanced screening of Les Miserables. NBC News Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent Andrea Mitchell was the event's Master of Ceremonies and presented Woodley House's Donald A. Brown Rose Award to Kay Redfield Jamison, Ph.D for her contribution to both the charity and the mental illness community.

    Also spotted at the event was CNN's Dana Bash, Catherine Robb, Jane Harmon, Mary Margaret Valenti (wife of the late head of the Motion Picture Association of America, Jack Valenti), and members of the notoriously philanthropic Cafritz family.
