      10th Anniversary Gala

      The Sunflower Foundation is celebrating its 10th year anniversary with a Black & Gold gala extravaganza.

      Celebrating 10 years of creating a world in which gender equality, justice and freedom can flourish, the Foundation continues its mission to empower women and girls in developing countries through education. This formed the basis and inspiration in why the Foundation was created. By educating girls, we endeavour to end social and economic sufferings such as child marriage, child trafficking, and premature death resulting from pregnancy as well as economic inequality and instability. Consequently, empowering girls not only benefits the whole community, it promotes long-term sustainable outcomes.

      Each year the Foundation chooses one particular project, and this year’s gala we are supporting Sunflower Kenya for their project ‘Pass the Mic Literacy, Art & Technology Program’. This program trains young women in the Kibera slums of Nairobi. This comprehensive literacy, art and technology program will produce culturally relevant books, comic books and magazines to be distributed throughout the community. These books will be sold in Nairobi to generate income for Sunflower Kenya. Our original goal in 2008 was to raise $6,000 for one project but since then we have funded 26 projects in seven countries and granted over $150,000.

      Relish our all-inclusive delicious food from artistic catering and fine wines, enjoy the charm of our host, Edward Hobbs, be entertained by live music and let your competitive side streak loose on our Live and Silent Auctions.
