Lunafest Women’s Film Festival: a Benefit for Girls on the Run Vermont
Lunafest is a national film festival that features short films by, for, and about women. This year, Vermont’s Lunafest will be hosted by Girls on the Run Vermont and funds raised from the evening will go to our Every Girl Fund which helps ensure that more local girls, and future leaders of Vermont, have access to our after-school empowerment program.
Taking place on the evening of Saturday, October 7 at the Main Street Landing Film House in Burlington, the benefit will feature short films that cover a range of topics — from motherhood and mental growth to relationships, aging, and health.
Our guest speaker for the evening will be Karen Newman, world-class triathlete, cancer and eating disorder survivor, author, and dietitian.
But make sure you come early for the pre-screening reception! Starting at 6:30pm, join GOTRVT staff, Karen Newman, and fellow community members for light refreshments, cash bar, and mingling. Pick up your free gift and bid on curated raffle baskets chocked-full of local goodies. With themes like “Relax & Recharge,” “Healthy & Strong,” and “Outdoor Fun,” there is a basket for everyone!
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a portion of ticket sales will be donated to Breast Cancer Prevention Partners, who works on a national level to prevent breast cancer by eliminating our exposure to toxic chemicals and radiation linked to the disease.
A ticket to Vermont’s Lunafest guarantees the following:
- Admission to the film screening (nine short films with intermission and featuring guest speaker, Karen Newman)
- Admission to the pre-screening reception with light refreshments, a cash bar, and plenty of awesome raffle baskets to bid on!
- A free gift from GOTRVT!
- Joy of donating to TWO great causes at the same time!
We hope you’ll join us on this inspiring and important evening as we raise funds and awareness for girls’ and women’s health!
