The LUNAFEST Story - Connecting Women Through Film
The films celebrate the unique, touching and inspirational roles of women in local, national and international communities. Established in 2000 by LUNA, the makers of the Whole Nutrition Bar for Women, LUNAFEST connects women, their stories and their causes through film. This traveling film festival spotlights the work of a diverse array of talented women filmmakers with intelligent, funny and thought-provoking themes.
All of the LunaFest proceeds are donated to charity. Specifically, net proceeds will benefit the Breast Cancer Fund and the Soroptimist International of Cameron Park and El Dorado Hills share will focus on helping provide education for women who are financially responsible for themselves and their families.
The event is Thursday, April 10 at the Cameron Park Community Services District Community Center, 2502 Country Club Drive in Cameron Park. Doors open at 6:30 a.m. with beverages for sale and complimentary desserts. Showtime is 7 p.m.
The first Soroptimist Club was established in 1921 by a group of 80 women in Oakland and now boasts approximately 100,000 members in 120 countries. It is a volunteer service organization which includes active and retired business and professional women who are dedicated to improving the lives of women and children in local communities and throughout the world.
The Cameron Park/El Dorado Hills club, in existence since 1981, has primarily raised funds through A Chocolate Affair, partnering with the Soroptimist International of Placerville Club, and the Cameron Park Show ‘n’ Shine and Fly-In, partnering with Rotary.
This is the second year the club is presenting LunaFest.
All funds raised from local projects go back to the community through scholarships and grants.
