Still Fabulous at 15!

In early October, Sunflower Mission and nearly 700 of our closest friends gathered to celebrate 15 years of providing educational opportunities to the under-served, in Vietnam. We are so happy to report that we raised over $384,000 through the event, alone!

The evening began with a reception of tasty hors d’oeuvres at the Sugar Land Marriott hotel. Welcoming our guests were displays that included the artful expression of the number 15, gorgeous floral arrangements, an anthology of our annual reports, and a 3-tiered cake.

Hot Off the Press

Every year a dedicated team of individuals work hard to get our annual report published. This year was no different. We are so excited about this fresh new design. Thank you to our very talented designer, Nguyen! Not only did she come up with the concept for the annual report herself, she also helped to organize and collaborate with the board of directors.

Working towards a deadline with many moving parts, Nguyen was able to capture all of our ideas, images, and words elegantly. Knowing how much work it requires, we can’t thank the team enough.

Read a little bit more about our talented designer (who also designed our 15th Anniversary Gala logo)!

The Hygiene & Health Education Initiative (HHEI) was launched in the fall of 2016. This new program is aimed at teaching students the basics of hand-washing, cleanliness, and health.
