Zonta Club of Oakville partners with film festival for fundraising event

The 2021 Oakville Film Festival (OFFA) will be its biggest ever with close to 100 films. The Zonta Club of Oakville, Canada, was selected as the OFFA’s charity/service group of choice for the Women Who Give: Multiculturalism Day screenings on Sunday, 27 June. Many of the films screened that day speak to Zonta causes, such as gender equality, ending gender-based violence, ending child marriage and education access. 

Zonta members around the world can watch GOSIA @ TOMEK on Sunday, 27 June from 10 am to 1 pm EDT. This German documentary explores what happens to a relationship if a partner suddenly becomes severely disabled after an accident and the limits of a society that talks a lot about inclusion, but often does not seem to be ready for it.

When festival attendees purchase a day pass for June 27 — Multiculturalism Day — US$10 will be donated to the Zonta Foundation for Women. $20 from an All Access Festival Pass will be donated to Zonta when attendees use the PROMO code: ZontaOFFA2021. Both OFFA passes are on sale now at offa.ca.

At their monthly club meeting, the club voted unanimously to donate the proceeds from this fundraising event to Zonta International’s Foundation for Women. Club members felt this fundraising event captured Zonta’s international, multicultural mission and causes perfectly and it was only fitting that the funds be directed to our international initiatives.
