2021 Virtual Gala


Our Gala will feature a captivating presentation by John Newcombe, documentary filmmaker and Winnetkan, on the making of the movie “Home Alone” and other films located on the North Shore. Hear scintillating stories from family members who lived in the house during the shoot, view “never before seen” video footage taken by a neighbor, and discover the role that local actors and extras played in the making of this beloved film.
