On June 13, 2013, the Iowa Father's Day Council will present the 1st Annual Father of the Year Awards Dinner at The Meadows Events Center at Prairie Meadows. The event will honor three outstanding fathers for their ability to successfully balance their professional and personal lives, while making an impact in the community. All proceeds from the event will benefit the American Diabetes Association and its mission to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.
Since 1999, The American Diabetes Association has partnered with the National Father's Day Council to host the Father of the Year Awards dinner. Each year we recognize numerous men from across the nation for the outstanding strength, commitment and love they exhibit as fathers. These men have not only attained success in their chosen field or endeavor, but carved out time to teach and mature their children while also becoming good citizens and proud members of the community. Diabetes affects nearly 26 million children and adults nationwide. The more than $25 million that has been raised to date from Father of the Year Events will help the American Diabetes Association fund essential advocacy, education and research initiatives.
