The Honor Project
“Valor is stability, not of legs and arms, but of courage and the soul.”-Michel de Montaigne
The primary goal of the Trifecta Dance Collective to infuse an artistic voice into the communities we serve. The Honor Project was created to honor our heroes, to remember their achievements, and to thank them for their sacrifices.
The Trifecta Dance Collective hosted the first annual Honor Project Benefit performance on November 4 at The BookMarket in Glenview. The project was originally proposed by 5th grader Brinley Arens to support all those who have served, including her father, Bob Arens, a Chicago firefighter and veteran of Operation Desert Storm. Over 70 dancers performed. At the event, the group raised more than 300 pounds of donations and $300 for Operation Support Our Troops. Local sponsors for the event included QAS Boy Scout Troop #626, Nuts & More, Barbara's Bookstore, Bravo, Nestle, The Soma Institute, Starbucks, VFW Post 8322 and Your Pie.
