It’s time again for Joe and Kathy O’Donnell’s annual Joey O’Donnell Film Premiere, which benefits the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. (The O’Donnells created The Joey Fund in 1986 when their son Joey died after a long battle with CF.) The couple, who’ve raised more than $100 million to find a cure for cystic fibrosis, host the annual film premiere in the Neiman Marcus Court at the Natick Mall, and guests get to see a Hollywood film before anyone else. (They also get to sample a lot of savory treats prepared by local restaurants.) This year’s event takes place Nov. 5 and the movie is “Molly’s Game,” written and directed by Aaron Sorkin and starring Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba, and Kevin Costner. (It comes out Christmas Day.) Tickets for the Joey O’Donnell Film Premiere are available here.
