Zonta Club of the Santa Clarita Valley is currently offering sponsorship opportunities as well as admission and opportunity drawing tickets for its 2014 Lunafest, a festival of short films by, for and about women. This year’s program will feature nine short films and will be held Thursday, May 1, at Canyon Theatre Guild in Downtown Newhall.
The $40 ticket price includes a red carpet reception on the patio at 6 p.m., prior to the screening. Food and a glass of wine are included with admission, and StoneFire Grill will be hosting a tasting of their new Keen Green salad and Pepper Garlic Tri Tip with Gorgonzola butter. Movie treats such as nachos, candy, soda and popcorn also are included with admission, and guests will enjoy assorted desserts from featured local bakers during intermission.
Sponsorship opportunities include the Cannes sponsorship for $1,000, Sundance for $500 and Lunafest for $250. All sponsors receive event tickets and logo placement, plus the opportunity to place items in the swag bag which will be given to each guest. Sponsors at the top two levels also receive on-screen commercials at the screening.
For $10, guests will be able to purchase one of 300 tickets to be sold for an opportunity drawing that will be held at the event. Prizes include La Curcio luxury skincare products, sterling silver jewelry, Lia Sopia jewelry, a Balance Point Spa package, Dodger tickets, wine, gourmet cooking classes and more. The drawing prize values range from $120 to over $1000.
This will be the fourth time that the local Zonta Club has been the local Lunafest host, and the number of guests increases each year as word spreads throughout the community, according to event chair Karen Maleck-Whiteley. In addition to supporting Zonta’s local and international service projects, LUNAFEST has raised more than $556,000 for the Breast Cancer Fund, the event’s main beneficiary, and more than $1 million for other women’s non-profit host organizations.
Established in 2000 by LUNA, the makers of the Whole Nutrition Bar for Women, Lunafest connects women, their stories and their causes through film. This traveling film festival spotlights the work of a diverse array of talented women filmmakers with intelligent, funny and thought-provoking themes.
