Hundreds of guests, government officials, and local agencies join together for a heartwarming luncheon, presented by Hatton Foundation, to celebrate fathers and support Talbert House's Fatherhood Project, a program that assists men in their efforts to become the responsible, committed, and nurturing dads they want to be. This event recognizes two men as Fathers of the Year - one from the Fatherhood Project and one leader from our community. The Fatherhood Project is funded in part by the Ohio Commission on Fatherhood and United Way of Greater Cincinnati.
