For over 20 years, Caron Treatment Centers has honored individuals, organizations and institutions from across the country who have excelled in the fields of addiction and mental health through our Caron Community Awards Breakfasts. These individuals have given unselfishly to heighten awareness, promote prevention, and in some cases, provide opportunities for others to access treatment. We are thrilled to bring this event to Atlanta for the first time!

Purchase a table and recognize an Unsung Hero
An Unsung Hero is someone who has gone above and beyond to accomplish great deeds, but often receives little to no recognition for them. During the Caron Community Awards Breakfast, you will have the opportunity to choose one individual to receive an Unsung Hero Award. This can be someone who has given unselfishly of themselves to make a difference in their place of work, school or the community.
Your Unsung Hero will have a brief write-up in the event program and will come up on stage to receive an award during the program. Please note that they will not have an opportunity to speak.
Table sales received after 3/7/2019 will not include an Unsung Hero nomination due to adhering to print timelines.
