Proudly Presented by



Friday June 16, 2023 12pm-1:30pm at the Hyatt Regency Downtown Indianapolis.

The goal of the Faces of Fatherhood Luncheon is to increase public awareness about the importance of fatherhood. It also serves as our flagship fundraising event, raising close to $1,000,000 since its inception. A past program participant always serves as the keynote speaker, sharing his story of strength and perseverance, and increasing awareness about the challenges many of them face.

A select number of fathers from across Marion County will be presented with the Heart of a Father Award. These fathers will go through a rigorous nomination and screening process to ensure that they represent the four dimensions of fatherhood at the highest level: Involvement, Consistency, Awareness, and Nurturing. Additionally, they must be actively engaged in their communities through volunteering or other forms of service. To date, over 75 Indianapolis fathers have earned the Heart of Father Award (nominate a father special to you today!).

As the luncheon continues to grow each year, reaching over 350 business, civic, and community leaders, we hope that you or your company will support Fathers and Families Center by joining us for this fun and inspirational event! Individual tickets and Corporate Sponsorships are available for purchase online, or for more information please contact Annamarie Melodia at 317-921-5951 or
