Fathers M.I.A. Presents... "As We Honor Her" Annual Spring GALA
Sat, April 8, 2017, 6:30 PM – 10:30 PM EDT
FATHERS M.I.A. presents its Inaugural Spring Gala, "As We Honor Her", on April 8, 2017, at the Signature Grand in Davie FL, 33317, at 6:30 PM.
Birthed out of the vision of the organization's Founder Gernald Hawkins, Sr and Co-Founder Robert L. Jackson III, this event is designed to foster a connection between fatherless young ladies and a community that cares. The purpose of the event is much like the vision of the organization; it is a mission to counsel, instruct, and support Fathers on their path from Missing In Action to Motivated Involved & Active.
The gala will honor 25 deserving young ladies, grades 9-12, from the Miami-Dade and Broward communities. Nominations will be submitted by community leaders, teachers, counselors, city officials and pastors. Two high school seniors will be awarded scholarships based on an essay submitted to the organization about the impacts of being raised without their father.
We have partnered with local police agencies that will volunteer 25 outstanding officers who will escort these young ladies and "bridge the gap" left by their fathers. This will be a night of honor and one that will be remembered forever, "As We Honor Her", and provide an unforgettable experience which may not otherwise ever be afforded.
The event will be hosted by South Florida radio personality, TAMARA GANT aka ‘TAMARA G’, currently of the nationally syndicated MICHAEL BAISDEN SHOW. It will be a night of recognition, dinner, dancing, live music and special guest speakers, all in celebration of a great cause, as we honor these deserving young ladies.
