Presenting Sponsor


We’re bringing the 56th Annual Luncheon to you!

Join us for an uplifting event, all from the comforts of your own home or office. For the first time – anyone, anywhere can attend this event. Just grab your phone, computer, or any internet-enabled device.

This year’s 56th Annual Luncheon will be co-hosted by WLWT Channel 5 Courtis Fuller, with special guest speaker Dr. Bernice A. King, minister, attorney, and daughter of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

CAA’s theme this year is A Bridge to Opportunity. This year, we have had to come together in ways that we never envisioned to remain strong as a community. We are bridging partnerships with different agencies to extend our reach. We are providing a bridge for those seeking help during this pandemic, who have never had to seek help before. We’ve built a bridge to ensure that our children are not left behind as well as a bridge to support parents, providing them with the tools they need to thrive.
