The Woodhouse brothers, known for fighting about politics, will come together Wednesday night in Raleigh to support the Autism Society of North Carolina.
Brad and Dallas Woodhouse subscribe to opposite ends of the political spectrum. While they will unite to support a common cause, they will not be setting aside their political differences. In fact, "An Evening with the Woodhouse Brothers" will feature the brothers debating.
Brad is the president of Americans United For Change and American Bridge. He was also a spokesman for the Democratic National Committee and worked on President Barack Obama's campaigns. Dallas founded Carolina Rising and was former director of the N.C. chapter of Americans for Prosperity.
Their mother, Joyce Woodhouse, just wants peace during holiday family gatherings. She is known as the "C-SPAN mom," after she called into a program in December to reprimand her sons for fighting on-air. The video clip went viral on the internet with millions of views on Youtube.com, and it was featured on TV shows such as The View and The Today Show.
Never miss a local story.
On the air, Joyce reminded her sons of their nephew with autism, saying she is a one-issue voter supporting the party that will expand health care. The brothers' older sister, Joy Hart, lives in Raleigh with her 17-year-old son Christopher, who is autistic.
"She is the real superstar, struggling to find the proper car for my grandson Christopher while raising three other children," Joyce said in a statement. "This should be a great event, and I hope people buy tickets quickly to honor families like Joy's."
Time Warner Cable News' Tim Boyum will emcee the event which begins at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Woman's Club of Raleigh with a dessert reception. Tickets are $50 a piece or $75 for VIP access which will begin at 6:30 p.m.
