The gala is held to identify and honor fathers who have demonstrated the ability to balance their personal lives, to serve as a role model for their children, and help make a positive difference in their community.
The proceeds from the Father of the Year Awards Dinner benefit the local programs and the American Diabetes Association initiatives throughout Los Angeles.
This eagerly anticipated gathering will be held on Friday, June 17, 2016 at the Beverly Hilton’s, Beverly Hills Ballroom.
The Father’s Day Council, in a partnership with the American Diabetes Association that dates back to 1999, annually honors fathers throughout the country in the month of June.
The Honoree fathers are luminaries who have demonstrated the ability to balance highly successful professional lives with their role as a father while also actively serving their communities. The purpose of this award is to recognize men who have made family a priority while balancing demanding careers and community involvement.
Every year, the council in each city conducts a nomination process to identify honorees who meet the criteria to be nominated as Father of the Year. By honoring men who are seen as leaders in the community, they are generating attention to the event that furthers the Father’s Day Council’s goal of heightening awareness of the importance of fatherhood.
We hope you will join us in supporting the amazing gentlemen who will be honored at this year’s event!
