Fourth Annual Juneteenth Father's Day Celebration
In partnership with the Lee County Housing Authority, Boys & Girls Clubs of Lee County, Lee County Black History Society, Inc. and the City of Fort Myers STARS Complex, the Housing Authority of the City of Fort Myers will host its Fourth Annual Father’s Day Celebration, an initiative created to strengthen families and communities by supporting dads, on Saturday, June 14 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Clemente Park located at 3265 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard in Fort Myers. This year’s Father’s Day Celebration will be filled with a variety of fun and entertainment for the entire family to enjoy including youth and adult basketball competitions, flag football, music, stage performances, food and drinks, various kids’ activities and more. Event attendees will also have an opportunity to receive free information from community businesses in the areas of education, health, employment, housing and many other services. The HACFM will be combining its Father’s Day festivities and the Lee County Black History Society’s ‘Juneteenth’ celebrations into one event. As part of President Obama’s Fatherhood and Mentoring Initiative, the HACFM’s annual Father’s Day event is a nationwide day of events encouraged by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The Fatherhood and Mentoring Initiative partners with the Administration for Children and Families, White House Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships, National Responsible Fatherhood Clearinghouse, fathers, mothers, family-serving organizations and other leaders from across the country who wish to be positive role models and mentors for the children in their lives and communities. Sponsorships for the Fourth Annual Father’s Day Celebration are now available up to $5,000.
