Anniversary Champions for Children Awards Gala
The Champion for Children Awards Dinner is the primary fundraising event for the Council for Unity. The evening’s festivities bring together a diverse audience of corporate and community leaders, educators, entertainers and philanthropists. Proceeds enable the organization to continue its vital work on behalf of young people.
Each year, hundreds of CFU students celebrate their personal growth, achievements and success at this event. It has become one of the most meaningful CFU experiences for both its members and anyone who is fortunate enough to attend.
Leadership Recognition Event
The Leadership Recognition Event honors the achievements of outstanding students, teachers, parents and community leaders who go above and beyond the call of duty.
We congratulate all of the recipients of our Peacemaker, Outstanding Leadership, Humanitarian and Impact Awards.
