The Fatherhood Awards is an awe-inspiring, star-studded comedy-and-music awards show that brings together local and national celebrities, athletes, area officials, and the general public, to pay tribute to ordinary, but well-deserving fathers, and father-figures, who perform extraordinary acts for their families, friends and communities. But that’s not all…

In addition to rewarding superior acts of fatherhood and leadership, this gratifying and unique awards show is significant to the progressive promotion of police-community relations. The Fatherhood Awards was created to acknowledge, celebrate, and recognize men who uplift their neighborhoods and communities through public service, personal contributions, and the pursuit of personal improvement as fathers and father-figures. The event is part comedy show, part live concert and filled with entertainment.
