In 2008, Marcaccio cohosted a GWTW Weekend at Meadow Brook Theatre, featuring cast member Mickey Kuhn, as well as worked with MBT and 3 other theatres on their productions of Moonlight and Magnolias,providing GWTW background information and lending copies of vintage items for use as stage props. In addition, she has organized group GWTW tours in Atlanta and Hollywood, displayed her collection in libraries, including the Detroit Public Library's Detroiters Collect! Exhibition, and at Gone With The Wind events, and has been featured in Detroit-area newspapers.
