Platinum Dads

The Father Center’s Platinum Dads Event

 Like the metal for which it is named, responsible fatherhood is precious, strong, enduring and priceless…..something to be treasured and cherished for a lifetime. Each year on the Saturday before Fathers’ Day, the Platinum Dads event showcases the vital contributions of fathers and father-figures. Men are nominated by their families, and/or peers. Additionally, a more “senior” man is chosen to be the recipient of the Robert E. Alston Legacy of Fatherhood award.  This gentleman sets the standard for other men by his longer term example of dedication not only to his family but to others in need of fatherly guidance and support.

Our 16th Annual Platinum Dads Awards Celebration will be held on Saturday June 19, 2021 where men will be honored, in the presence of family and friends, as Platinum Dads, and one man will become the Legacy of Fatherhood awardee.

Platinum Dads is The Father Center’s signature family-friendly fundraising event that honors men who demonstrate exemplary fatherhood through a commitment to their families and communities. All monies raised are used to directly support The Father Center’s workforce development activities, job training programs and services.
