Description

On Saturday, August 20, the Friends of the Bath House hosts a screening of Honk the Goose. The film is an internationally recognized and awarded documentary starring Honk as himself and his bestie, Cheryl Allison, in this true story of an unlikely friendship. The story of Honk and Cheryl made national news and their friendship and love became a source of joy and hope during a period of isolation and loss for so many.

Cheryl was not only instrumental in saving Honk, but devoted her time to win his friendship…oh wait, that’s not quite true. Honk fell in love with Cheryl at first sight, as you will see for yourself in the film.

Since completing this film, Cheryl has entered the documentary into numerous film festivals, receiving a trove of accolades and awards for affectionately sharing her heartwarming story with this very special goose. Watch the trailer here.

Honk has become the ambassador for dumped domestic ducks and geese and currently has 80,000+ followers on Instagram at @honk_thegoose where Cheryl has posted her favorite experiences with Honk and his ultimate adopted home, Rogers Wildlife Rehabilitation Center.

Cheryl Allison; Kathy Rogers, founder of Rogers Wildlife Rehabilitation Center; the center's duck handler, Rusty Gragsone; and Marty Van Kleeck, associate producer on the film and co-author of the Honk books, plan to be in attendance and available for a “talk back” after the movie.
