The relationship between a father and his child is a relationship that should be honored, respected, and encouraged. In honor of fathers in Gainesville, Gainesville Housing Authority in collaboration with Alachua County Housing Authority is hosting its annual “Celebrating Fatherhood” event on Saturday, June 6th 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at the T.B. McPherson center, 1717 SE 15th Street.

This event features fun-filled activities and educational resources to promote togetherness and encourage fathers’ to take an active role in the lives of their children. There will be games, door prizes, music, community resources, lunch, a kickball tournament and a grand prize drawing. “Celebrating Fatherhood” is open to residents of Gainesville & Alachua County Housing Authority.

This county is facing an epidemic of children growing up without the love, support, and encouragement that a father can provide. Celebrate fatherhood with us on June 6th. For more information about this event or to nominate your father for ‘Father of the Year’, click
