Spring Gala 2019 Honorees Application
FATHERS M.I.A. presents its annual Spring Gala, “As We Honor Her”, to be held on April 6, 2019 at the Charles F. Dodge City Center in Pembroke Pines, FL.
Birthed out of the vision of the organization’s Founders, Gernald Hawkins, Sr. and 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; whose mission is to counsel, instruct, and support fathers on their path from Missing In Action to becoming Motivated, Involved & Active.
At this spring gala, we will honor a minimum of 25 deserving young ladies from Broward and Dade Counties, High Schools grades 9 through 12. Nominated by people in the community, to include but not limited to teachers, counselors, city officials, pastors, and community citizens. The nominees are to complete and submit the enclosed application. “As We Honor Her” Spring Gala will focus on young ladies who do not have an active father in their life. To be consider for this event, the Father cannot be active in the applicant’s life.
It will be a night to honor the young ladies and give them an experience they would otherwise not be afforded. We are partnering with local police agencies, in which many of their outstanding policemen will accompany the honorees for the evening, standing with them as a father figure on such a special night.
Application DEADLINE: January 28, 2019
