Join us for our signature event! Our luncheon is unique because of the dance and music performances by our youth center kids - who practice all year and enthusiastically perform for us. We hear powerful stories shared by DFYF clients and their families. We come together as a community to recognize "the state of the child" in Central Ohio. We have an art exhibit and sale showcasing wonderful creations by our youth center artists. We all learn about a great, important organization offering counseling and education services.

100% of net proceeds goes to fund DFYF programs serving
over 8,000 youth and their families annually.

Sponsorship opportunities available
