On Thursday, April 13, 2017 Metro Cleveland FCA hosted the First Annual "City of Champions for Christ" Luncheon at Quicken Loans Arena in downtown Cleveland. The event was held on the practice court to a sold out crowd. Dr. Alex Johnson, the President of Cuyahoga Community College, was the keynote speaker. All that attended were inspired by all of those that spoke, especially the three award recipients.
