LUNAFEST! July 20, 2010

While we know that domestic violence affects both men and women, the majority of victims are women.  It was this very fact that popped into the mind of Tina, an FVPC volunteer, when she was eating one of her daily LUNA Bars,  “I found out about the LUNAFEST® fundraiser while reading the back of the Luna Bar box.  As a community educator volunteer, I believe LUNAFEST will spread the word in our community during Domestic Violence Awareness Month about the services that we offer.  I am thrilled to bring LUNAFEST to Chapel Hill!”

LUNAFEST® is an evening of short films by, for, about women® to be held as a fundraiser for the sponsoring organization, FVPC and The Breast Cancer Fund.  The films range in time from 2 minutes to 15 minutes.  They might be in English or another language.  The focus of LUNAFEST are the stories of women, in small town America or in a foreign country.

LUNAFEST will be held October 7 at The Varsity Theater in Chapel Hill. LUNAFEST arrives in early October, just in time for DVAM. Tickets go on sale September 1st! There’s also a T-Shirt design contest and the winner will receive a $50 gift certificate to Aveda.

We hope to see you October 7th for this incredible event.
