The 42nd Annual Father of the Year Awards’ mission is simple. Honor fathers and raise funds for charities benefiting children and families.
Our event was founded in 1976 by apparel legend Sylvan Landau. Since its founding, the Father of the Year Awards has grown from a modest event with a few hundred people to an annual celebration of fatherhood. At that first event $500 was raised to begin a trust for the Davis quintuplets, who were born to a Dallas family struggling to make ends meet. To date, the Father of the Year Awards has contributed over $4 million for more than 80 area children and family-related charities.
This year Father of the Year is proud to honor the following fathers:
Pierce M. Allman, Director of Marketing, Allie Beth Allman
John B. Psoton, President, Daymark Living
Robert L. (Bob) Walker, President & CEO Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children
