We need your help! Help us sponsor our 8th Annual Holiday Cheer Party at Walter Reed!
What is it? 8th Annual Holiday Cheer Party 2015 – Providing morale boosting cheer for the patients, family members & staff at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, MD.
Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC) in Bethesda, MD is the first stop for many of America’s returning wounded service members from Iraq and Afghanistan. Known as “the amputee ward”, historically the orthopedic Ward 57 at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, now 4 East, houses some of the most severely injured patients for weeks or even months. For an 8th year Operation Ward 57 will host its Holiday Cheer Party for patients, families, staff and alumni of Ward 57 and 4E. This event, which will occur on the 4th deck of the hospital, will feature a traditional holiday meal provided by the famous parkway Deli. Gifts will be distributed to patients & their families and live music featuring the soulful music of JP Hennessy. And for a 4th year we will be returning to the 7th floor to host a Holiday Cheer Party as well for the inpatient behavioral health unit patients and staff.
As America enters its 14th year of the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts, showing support for our returning wounded service members is more important than ever. These brave warriors fight a new battle of recovery from limb loss, brain injury, post traumatic stress disorder and more. This Holiday Cheer Party is a way to honor their sacrifice and show them that they are not alone while sharing in the holiday spirit.
