Luna Fest 2017 is over and it was the best and most successful one we have ever held!
I’d like to thank all of our volunteers, both Soroptimists and non-Soroptimists for helping us with this year’s Luna Fest short film festival! In alphabetical order, a big thank you to all of the wonderful women that helped us with the event: Joan Boiko, Char Bossel, Debbie Brandt, Leann Dale, Samantha Dewing, Becky Goebel, Marisol Guerrero, Yareli Hernandez, Donna Mannoff, Jamie Pricer, Penny Shaw, Sharon Snow and Marcia Stein.
We also need to thank our great sponsors:
Greg Barton, CPA
Leann Dale, Senior Living Options of the Desert
Proceeds of Luna Fest 2017 will go to the Breast Cancer Fund, the Opehelia Project at Palm Springs High School, the Live Your Dream Award and the Soroptimist House of Hope.
Organizations exist because their work involves something bigger and more complex than one individual can accomplish. Soroptimist is no different. We are women helping women and the more helpers we have, the more we can accomplish.
Just take a look at our mission: To improve the lives of women and girls through programs leading to social and economic empowerment. This is no small task! In order to make a difference in the lives of women and girls, it’s critical that we work together and each take on tasks within our clubs and regions. Delegating is the most efficient way to accomplish our big goal and serves as a great way to build a strong team.
Everyone has a specific type of expertise and strength and by coming together we can build a stronger organization. We need to work together to do that. So, when asked, I hope you will step up to help us because we need you and everyone in the club in order to be a success!
Thank you all for all you do to help women and girls be strong!
