Small Screen Big Stars
"Lucy, you got some splainin' to do!"
Take a trip back in time to 1950's television when the Cleavers were the quintessential American family, the Lone Ranger and Tonto led the fight for law and order in the early West, and Lassie was the most beloved canine of all time. It was a time when father knew best and our funniest neighbors were the Kramdens and the Nortons. Lucy and Ethel were up to no good, and Sergeant Joe Friday would declare, "This is the city, Los Angeles, California. I work here, I carry a badge."
Those were the good ole' days of 1950's television. We invite you to trek back in time with us on September 16 at our annual benefit Small Screen Big Stars. Your attendance will help make it possible for North Shore Senior Center to continue funding critically-needed resources in our community.
In fiscal year 2016-17:
Founded in 1956 North Shore Senior Center’s original intent was to enrich the lives of seniors by giving them a place to socialize, volunteer and learn. Later, counseling and social services were offered. In fiscal year 2016, we served 23,694 seniors throughout the northern suburbs. Our programs enhance the quality of life of seniors and allow them to remain independent and in their homes for as long as possible. For the past 61 years, our mission has remained the same: to help foster the independence and well-being of older adults, enhance their dignity and self-respect, and promote their participation in and contribution toward all aspects of community life. North Shore Senior Center is a 501(c)(3) organization. We welcome adults of all races, ethnicities, religious traditions and spiritual practices, genders and sexual orientations.
