The Newport Harbor chapter of Zonta International hosts their annual Orange County LUNAFEST fundraiser Saturday, April 25th at Chapman University.
It's a traveling film festival of award-winning short films by, for and about women. This season, the program of eight films - filled with stories of reflection, hope and humor - will travel to over 150 cities and screen in front of 25,000 people. Each year, various organizations bring LUNAFESTs to their communities and raise funds for their local non-profits as well as their main beneficiary - Breast Cancer Fund.
This will be a wonderful afternoon outing with your significant other and family. Or, with Mother's Day approaching, it might be a treat for your mom or other special women in your life. For the first time this event is being held on the Chapman University campus in Orange at the world-class Marion Knott Film Studios. There are plenty of great options for dinner nearby if you'd like to make a day of it!
It's a worldwide organization of professionals working to empower all women through service and advocacy. The Newport chapter recently helped create a "soft room" at the Costa Mesa police station used for victims of domestic abuse or human trafficking when they're talking to investigators. New transitional housing units in Anaheim for homeless women and their children were also established. Other local service projects include working with school children, human trafficking organizations, police departments, homeless women, seniors, teachers, and veterans. If you're looking for an opportunity to be "hands-on" in meaningful projects that make a real difference, please check out our local Zonta chapter.
