It is with great sadness that we announce that the 2020 Chick Lit Luncheon has been cancelled.

After days of very thorough consideration and thoughtful evaluation combined with great hope, we will follow the City’s commitment to public health and adhere to the ban on events of more than 500 people.

On behalf of our luncheon leadership team, our President and CEO Paige McDaniel, and all of us at CPD, we are tremendously grateful to all who have supported our mission to provide what abused children urgently need today to thrive tomorrow. It absolutely breaks our hearts to be unable to share the very special event we had planned for you (it was going to be fabulous as was our beloved Diane!!). 

We thank you for your understanding and for continuing to stand beside our children. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Joanna Clarke, Vice President of Development and Communications at

Thank you again for your support and understanding.
