The Dude Fest: LUMANA FUNDRAISER
Saturday, August 27, 2011 at 7pm
At Fremont Outdoor Movies
The season wouldn’t be complete without a screening of the “The Big Lebowski” in Fremont. The Dude Fest kicks off a new northwest celebration for all things related to the 1998 Coen brothers cult comedy, “The Big Lebowski.”
This year, we are helping support a wonderful local charity Lumana . 100% of the entire beer garden and White Russian Bar sales go the organization. A portion of the ticket proceeds go to support Lumana.
To alleviate poverty in rural communities through education and entrepreneurship.
Our vision is to create healthy communities across Africa. We do that first by creating a baseline of financial self-sufficiency through our microfinance and Business Management Education program. We encourage community building and entrepreneurship, and leadership throughout the village. Through our on-the-ground partnerships, efforts, and surveys, we recognize the essential products or programs that will increase the amount of healthy communities across Africa.
Two years ago, the Fremont Outdoor Movies teamed up with the gang from Lebowski Fest to welcome the return of the 2009 “SPEED OF SOUND” tours return to Seattle hosted at Fremont Studios. It was an amazing event and Seattle was proud to welcome back a great annual movie tradition.
After Fremont organizers heard that it wouldn’t return in 2011 to Seattle, they decided to take matter into their own hands and create their own tribute event that allows fans of all ages to come together for an evening to share in the fun and “what-have-you’s”.
This is our first year and shares in the same celebration as Lebowski Fest, which we love to raise a little hell and raise awareness for a great charity organization with a special tribute to Jeff Bridges this year. Stay tuned for more details.
