Marilyn Remembered will be represented at the 7th Annual Norma Jean Gala, taking place on Saturday, May 19 in Los Angeles. Treasures from our club President Greg Schreiner and Scott Fortner’s collection will be on exhibit at the event. Marilyn Monroe estate items and film worn pieces displayed at the gala will be a first, and we’re thrilled to be part of it. All proceeds from this fundraiser benefit Camp Hollygrove / Uplift Family Services. Hollygrove was Marilyn’s childhood orphanage.
