‘LunaFest’ features films for charity

By From page B2 | March 26, 2014

LunaFest is a program of nine short films all by, for and about women.

The films celebrate the unique, touching and inspirational roles of women in local, national and international communities.

All of the LunaFest proceeds are donated to charity. Specifically, net proceeds will benefit the Breast Cancer Fund. The Soroptimist International of Cameron Park and El Dorado Hills 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.
