EAST PEORIA — Community Workshop Training Center Inc. presents its annual “CWTC Pathway Awards Dinner,” Tuesday, Sept. 11, at the Embassy Suites Hotel & Conference Center in East Peoria.

“Sports” is the theme of this year’s event and attendees are invited to “sport” their favorite athletic team apparel or team colors.

To help make this a successful event, friends, families, and community members are encouraged to join CWTC in making this a “World Championship Event!”
