JANUARY 15 FUNDRAISER & HOLIDAY UPDATE
We just wanted to send out some post-holiday/pre-festival love to our growing family of members, sponsors, participants and alumni. We’re stoked for the new year and look forward to a killer fifth annual! Eastern Oregon Film Festival will run February 20-22, 2014, in La Grande,OR.
PROGRAM SNEAK PEEK, PASS RELEASE, AUCTION, PARTY
Here’s the rundown of our annual fundraiser/party…
January 15, 2014 / 6:30pm – 9:30pm / Art Center at the Old Library (1006 Penn Ave).
Selected films, musical guests, visiting artists, parties, and the related goods will be announced! Trailers of selected films will screen beginning at 7:30pm. We’ll discuss the cultural, educational, and economic benefits that EOFF provides to the community, and enjoy snacks, beers, and wine! Bring your beautiful faces and get ready to face off against your pals — a live auction will include regional art, gift certificates, and more!
The fundraiser will be your last opportunity to become a member or sponsor of the 2014 festival, and will be the only time that festival passes will be sold at the discounted rate* of $35.
(*Only 100 passes available at $35 rate, sorry – online purchase available during the event for those who cannot make it.)
