With another successful PEEK fundraising event just completed, members of the Zonta Club of Sanibel-Captiva have turned their attention to two early April community events: 5th Annual LUNAFEST on Monday, April 4 and the sixth Community Collection Day on Saturday, April 9.
LUNAFEST is a traveling film festival dedicated to highlighting new female filmmakers, raising awareness about women’s issues, and bringing people together around innovative filmmaking. Eight short films ranging from animation to documentary to fictional drama will be shown, both in-person at the Sanibel Community House from 7 to 9 p.m. Monday, April 4 and online for private viewing any time or place over 48 hours from 7 p.m. April 4.
Tickets for LUNAFEST, in either format, are $20. To learn more about this year’s eight films and to purchase tickets, visit the Zonta website.
In addition, Zonta’s 6th annual Community Service Collection Day will be held in the parking area of the Sanibel Congregational United Church, 2050 Periwinkle Way, from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, April 9.
Bring gently-used and new household or clothing items for local non-profits to use in their mission to empower women, a goal shared with Zonta. Check your closets, garages, and storage spaces, and drive through to drop off donations. Cash or check donations are also accepted. For the complete list of needed items visit the Zonta website. Since donations are tax-deductible according to IRS rules, Zonta members will be on hand to collect items and issue tax receipts.
Both events benefit local non-profits with which Zonta San-Cap has a service relationship, all of which work to improve the lives of women and girls.
