State Of The Child Luncheon

State of the Child Luncheon

The State of the Child Luncheon is DFYF’s signature event where we come together as a community to recognize “the state of the child” in Central Ohio The event is unique because of the music and dance performances enthusiastically presented by youth in our after-school programs. In addition, some of our treatment clients and families share their stories about the impact of our services. We ask you to consider partnering with us by sponsoring our largest fundraiser for the important programs and services we provide to youth and their families. We anticipate over 500 attendees for our 2018 State of the Child Luncheon.
