Charles Hamilton Houston Awards Luncheon

Since 2013, The Charles Hamilton Houston Institute™ has been hosting our Annual Awards Luncheon with two goals in mind. The first is to confer awards to the "difference makers" in the Madison, WI area to acknowledge their invaluable contributions to the community. Secondly, the occasion serves as the primary fundraising effort for our organization. The Annual Awards Luncheon provides exceptional keynote speakers, networking opportunities, and a chance to praise the positive work in communities of color in Madison, WI. 


The 7th Annual CHHI™ Awards Luncheon will be hosted this year in Summer 2019. We will be releasing details in the very near future. We look forward to seeing you there and thank you for your support of The Charles Hamilton Houston Institute™.
