Everett Zonta’s Lunafest film festival was great success

The Zonta Club of Everett hosted its first Lunafest last month and we are thrilled with the results! Lunafest is a traveling film festival of short films made by women, for women.

The Zonta Club’s mission is to empower women, so the event was a perfect fit as a fundraiser for our foundation. Originally scheduled as an in-person event in May 2020, we had to pivot and had no idea what to expect from a virtual screening. The event turned out to be a great success and thanks to the support of our club, community and sponsors, we were able to raise almost $5,000 for our foundation.

The funds will be used for scholarships for girls and women in our community and grants for local agencies. A very big thank you to our sponsors: Beneficial State Bank, Merrill Lynch Wealth Management – The Sabiers Brayton Wealth Management Group, Lamoureux Real Estate and Robinett and Associates.

We hope to do this again in 2021.
