Kick Off the Holiday Season with These Upcoming Events on The North Shore!

There’s a growing anticipation of the holiday season here on the North Shore as we see decorations going up all around us and the chill in the air.  It’s a beautiful time of year on the North Shore whether you live in Winnetka, Deerfield, Northbrook, Highland Park, Glencoe or any of the other unique North Shore towns.  

As a North Shore Real Estate agent, I enjoy living and working on the North Shore and being a part of these vibrant communities, which is why I love to highlight what’s happening around town!  If you’re planning on hosting loved ones within the next week or two for the Thanksgiving holiday, you may be wondering what you can do to create even more holiday cheer.  Here are a few upcoming events you won’t want to miss!

Toys for Tots
Now through December 20th
- Take the opportunity to give back this holiday season by being a part of the Toys for Tots gift drive!  Residents are invited to drop off new, unwrapped items for the annual Marine Corps Toys for Tots from November 18th through December 20th at the following Winnetka locations: 
Police Department- Lobby 410 Green Bay Road at any time
