Funding Fathers: The Black Fathers Inaugural Gala

Tickets available HERE

On September 28th, we gather to celebrate the power and presence of Black Fathers.

What started out as a social media group is now growing into a support system that is changing lives and bringing Black Men together in support of each other in the most important undertaking of our lives: raising our children.

Join us as we honor six Black Fathers and raise funds to further the reach and effectiveness of The Black Fathers Foundation.

Dress to impress! We want you to look your best as we celebrate our best! Formal attire is required.

Keynote address by Devlon Waddell, co-founder of DewMore Publishing and founder of Knot You Vintage
