The Donut Dollies win Best Documentary Feature award

We are so excited to announce that last night our film, The Donut Dollies, won Best Documentary Feature at the GI Film Festival San Diego! We thank the women and veterans that served in Korea and Vietnam, especially those who shared their stories and archival materials with us, all of the donors who have supported us over the last five years, the songwriters and musicians who shared their music with us, and all of the people who generously provided advice, guidance and support to bring our project to fruition.

We look forward to sharing our film at more film festivals and screenings around the country, and via DVD and streaming as soon as possible.

      Didn’t hurt to have my little sister, Maggie Dutilly “star” in the show with her donation of epic film she shared with the Donut Dollie’s Project. We/our sister Katy and I were blessed to be able attend this first showing of a very important documentary. It gives people an aspect of the Vietnam War and the part these brave young women contributed. Red Cross volunteers who ministered to the troops in Vietnam. Thanks to all the Donut Dollies for your service!
