Honors Events is an annual fundraising event that honors and recognizes the achievements of African Americans in the Central Ohio and Miami Valley communities, who make a positive impact within their community.

Honors Events was started in 2011 and was founded by A Jay Pullen. Mr. Pullen’s vision was to create a setting where youth from his mentoring program could meet successful and prominent African Americans. Honors Events has brought families and communities together. All fundraised money has gone to help youth with food, clothing, school supplies, and other resources. Honors Events host up to 320 annually.


 Honors Events was created to shine the spotlight on African Americans in the community that aren’t just speaking of change but also making positive changes within our communities.
