About Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch

For their eighth fully animated feature, Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss’ beloved holiday classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous holiday spirit. Funny, heartwarming, and visually stunning, it’s a universal story about the spirit of Christmas and the indomitable power of optimism.


Can’t make it to 1,000 Christmas Salutes?

Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch is playing in The War Memorial’s Patriot Theater multiple times throughout December!


About Wins for Warriors Foundation

WinsForWarriors-Verlander.jpg

I started Wins for Warriors Foundation because I want to give back to the men, women, and families that are making countless sacrifices every day to give others the ability to pursue the American Dream. My dream was to play baseball. I have achieved that and continue to chase after it every single day. Because of the dedicated service of our military members and their families, I was given the opportunity to pursue my dream. That is why I contribute everything I’ve done, all my successes in life, to those fighting for our freedom. That’s why I give back, and I encourage you to join us.

Our goal at Wins for Warriors is to continue to launch an impactful and sustainable veteran organization. We have worked tirelessly to strategically plan a course of action that will allow us to actually help the families we are working to serve, and collaborate with other great organizations while not duplicating their efforts. Our focus is to celebrate and honor military members, veterans and their families, while also providing a resource center to navigate the many benefits and resources that are available to them. We are also now focused on providing relief to the military and veteran families in Texas that have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

We cannot successfully achieve these goals, or give back to these incredible families, without immense community support, funding and help. I encourage you to take the time to learn more about our mission, and let’s talk about ways we can achieve this together. Let’s serve the families that defend this great Country, and honor their service in all that we do.
