Lunafest - Apex, presented by Stroller Strides of Raleigh
Saturday, June 15, 2013 at 6:30 PM (EDT)
LunaFest connects women, their stories and their causes through film. This traveling film festival & charity event spotlights the work of a diverse array of talented women filmmakers with intelligent, funny and thought-provoking themes.
This is the BIGGEST charity event yet hosted by Stroller Strides of Raleigh! Many Stroller Strides locations around the country have hosted Lunafest events in the past, and we are proud to bring it to our area, and hope all can attend and support the great causes we are raising money for.
Our film festival in Apex will benefit The Breast Cancer Fund (http://www.breastcancerfund.org/) and the local nonprofit Postpartum Education and Support (http://pesnc.org/) which helps local moms and does a lot of great work with support for postpartum depression.
Bring your own chairs and blankets to enjoy the films under the stars. The event includes food, wine, and music in the vineyard. We are excited to have mollybond performing at Lunafest . The group is based in Raleigh, and their music is a mix of pop, rock, blues, folk, country, and gospel. They have an album called "A Bun In the Oven", available on iTunes.
