LUNAFEST 2021 is planned for May 1, 2021 at North Central College’s Center Stage Theater, 1665 Quincy Ave., Naperville. For more information on the Lunafest fundraiser, please contact Suzanne.
LUNAFEST is the newest AAUW Wheaton-Glen Ellyn Branch fundraiser. This international festival features short films made by, for and about women. Since it began in 2001, LUNAFEST has raised $4.1 million and hosted 1,646 screenings. These films mirror AAUW’s mission to promote and empower women. LUNAFEST is a fundraising opportunity offered by the CLIF BAR nature bar company.
Our first LUNAFEST debuted on Saturday, March 30, 2019 at The Center Stage in Naperville, IL. The evening opened with hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar, and raffle baskets. The film festival lasted approximately 2 hours with an intermission. It was an entertaining and educational evening. Funds from this event will be used for the Branch’s Educational Opportunity Fund.
