The Allan Houston Legacy Foundation is pleased to bring back the “Tickets Together” program where contest winners receive two tickets to a Knicks game and $100 spending money. Thanks to the generosity of Dr. Mitch Chasin (who attended “Father Knows Best” with his sons Danny and Matthew in 2010), Father-Child and Mentor-Mentee pairs will enjoy the action of Knicks games in Madison Square Garden throughout the 2012-2013 Season – it’s a great chance to spend some quality time together!
Participating is easy, just go to the "Tickets Together" Group and follow the instructions in the Forum at the bottom. Each contest awards tickets to the best essay, photo or video on the concepts of FISLL (Faith, Integrity, Sacrifice, Legacy and Leadership). Participate today and contact us at email@example.com with any questions. See you at Madison Square Garden!
Do you have or know a great dad who resides in the five boroughs of New York City? Do you know a dad who has overcome the odds to play a positive and powerful role in the life of his child and his community? Do you know a dad who proves the point that NYC Dads Matter? If so, please nominate him today!
The Mayor’s Citywide Fatherhood Initiative champions the message that dads matter. This June the Initiative will present the 3rd Annual NYC Dads Matter Awards. The event will promote the importance of responsible fatherhood by recognizing 10 fathers from across the City who overcame challenges to become positive and consistent forces in the lives of their children. The event will also celebrate the three year anniversary of the launch of the Mayor’s Fatherhood Initiative, highlight the City’s progress in making our agencies “father friendly” and help create memorable moments between Fathers and their children.
This will be one of many opportunities to show that, despite the crisis of father absence facing communities across the country, NYC Dads show up every day and are present and active in the lives of their child and communities. A selection committee comprised of community and government leaders will review the nominations and select 10 honorees to receive their awards in June.
To nominate an exceptional dad, complete the Dads Matter Nomination Form explaining how you know the potential honoree, the qualities that make him an exemplary father, and why you think he deserves a NYC Dads Matter Award. All nominees must be a father who actively participates in the life of his child, giving their health and welfare top priority. Nomination Forms and Essays are due Friday, April 26, 2013.
