Center of “Affection”

MedMag-FallWinter11-Center of AffectionOperation Mend patient Army Specialist Joey Paulk is the center of “affection” from Ruta Lee (right), Thalians Board Chairman, and Kira Lorsch (left), Thalians Event Co-Chair. The Thalians, an organization that focuses on mental health issues, presented Operation Mend with a $300,000 donation, representing proceeds from its recent annual fundraiser held at the Playboy Mansion. The group chose UCLA ’s Operation Mend because of its mission to heal America’s returning military heroes (from Iraq and Afghanistan) in body, mind, and spirit.
