Choose to make a difference. Choose LUNAFEST Seattle

CEM has been asked to invite all of our readers to help us and Girl Power Hour make a difference with GPH’s dedicated efforts to support two charities this December, the National Breast Cancer Fund and Reel Grrls.  Proceeds from your ticket to LUNAFEST will go back to these amazing charities.   LUNAFEST, a traveling film festival of award-winning short films by, for and about women is filled with stories of reflection, hope and humor. 


The Seattle Art Museum is a partner in LUNIEST and will be hosting the event. The event will include a Girl Power Hour style cocktail reception and viewing of the films.  You will enjoy nine inspiring short films by women filmmakers for women that will tug at your heartstrings and inspire you to make a difference in your community. The cocktail party reception, taking place immediately before the films, will include astrology readings, henna, appetizers, wine, door prizes, photo opportunities, swag bags, our resident female DJ and the chance to connect with new friends. Proceeds from this event will benefit Reel Grrls and The Breast Cancer Fund.

For only $35 dollars you can support two charities, enjoy 9 short films by women, connect with caring passionate women, and attend a red-carpet cocktail reception with your gal and guypals.

  1. What a great event! I'd love to go!

  2. You can of course always decorate your home with flowers that don't grow, or wilt either. These were painted by master painters of the past, in Western art history. I found a "garden" full of these flowers at, a company that makes excellent canvas prints, and even hand-painted replicas in oil paint on canvas, from digital images in their large archive for you to choose from.
    I ordered this one online from, , called Flowers by Jan Brueghel the Elder, a Flemish painter of the 16th century, as a present for my dear sister for her birthday, that she now has proudly hanging in her living room. She loves tulips and actually has those growing in the garden now, not far from the framed canvas print.
    She said the print adds "timelessness" to the atmosphere of her living space. That's true, because that beautiful vase of flowers has now stood for 600 years.
