Event Details

Fatherfigurehood: Bringing together father figures from the community and children who need them for a day of bonding, learning and fun.

Date: June 15

Location: Las Vegas, NV

Overview: The JOY of Fatherfigurehood will be an event focused on bridging the parental gaps children who don’t have positive male role models in their lives are missing. Through activities, stations and games there will be learning opportunities, teaching moments and the kind of bonding that comes from shared experiences. Things the children attending our event are missing.

Purpose: To give children without father figures in their lives an opportunity to spend time with men who are committed to making a positive difference, if only for a day.
