An Evening of Celebration and Giving
Each year, Moon & Stars contributions support special initiatives, provide scholarships to students in need, and keep Kutandara’s programs vital and engaging.
Our celebration this year featured a live auction, silent auction, and concert at eTown Hall with Chris Berry’s Panjorchestra on Saturday, November 4, 2017 and, Wow!, it was AMAZING! From the VIP reception to Panjorchestra’s last encore, Moon & Stars 2017 was a huge success. We couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you for your support.
We love eTown so much that we are already planning the 2018 Moon & Stars Fundraising Auction + Concert with them. Same intimate venue, same great opportunity to support Kutandara’s work, but with some twists and surprises. Mark your calendar now so you don’t miss out on the fun: Saturday, October 27, 2018.
This short film was shown at the event, but it’s worth a second look!
Here’s the 2017 Moon & Stars Video for you to enjoy.
Thanks to Janet Meyer for putting the music, audio, and photographs together, as well as all the students, alumnae, teachers, and Zimbabwean friends who shared their thoughts and feeling about Kutandara for this year’s video.

Thanks to the 2017 Volunteer Team
A special shout out goes to Lynne Fetterman, our Fundraising Chairperson. She worked day and night for weeks, procuring auction items, loading them into the online software, troubleshooting IT issues, training registration and checkout volunteers, and so much more. If you see her around, give her a high five!
We had so many people help to make Moon & Stars a success this year. We truly could not have done it without each and every one of these very special people!
