"Untold" Launch and Benefit

The Sunflower Project was founded by Leah Zeiger, a dancer, an activist, and a survivor of an extremely abusive relationship when she was fifteen. The organization uses dance, film, and other forms of art to educate young adults on abusive relationships and to help heal survivors of abuse, violence, and assault.

The Sunflower Project is holding a benefit event that will include performances, speakers, an auction, and a sneak peak premiere of the award-winning documentary “Untold”, which will become available to the public after the benefit. All proceeds for this event will go towards helping to fund the application process for The Sunflower Project to become an official 501(c)3 non profit organization. This event will be held at Trigger, located at 2810 W Addison in Chicago, IL. The benefit will take place on Sunday, March 11th, from 4-7pm. Hors d'oeuvres will be served, and there will be an open bar.

Tickets for the event are $30 for general admission, but a limited amount of VIP tickets are for sale at $50 a ticket. The VIP guests will receive access to the event at 3:30, half an hour early, to have a more intimate conversation with the founding members of The Sunflower Project and to celebrate with a champagne toast, as well as receive a “swag bag” with exclusive Sunflower Project merchandise, information about similar non profit organizations, and a never-before-seen excerpt from founder Leah Zeiger’s in-process memoir.

We encourage you to by your ticket in advance, because there are a limited amount of tickets available. If you would like to discuss the event further, please don’t hesitate to contact Leah at Again, all of the proceeds from the event will go directly towards helping The Sunflower Project to become an official non profit organization, which will allow us to do things like go into high schools with programs that will educate young adults on how to spot an abusive relationship, how to avoid it, and how to help those who have survived it.
