Talbert House’s Fatherhood Luncheon, presented by the Hatton Foundation, honors fathers from both the community and the Fatherhood Project, a program that assists men in their efforts to become responsible, committed and nurturing fathers. This year’s luncheon, held on Thursday, June 2 at the Hyatt Regency Downtown, will honor Buddy LaRosa, Ken Griffey Sr., and Brad Wallis as 2016 Fathers of the Year. The luncheon is held as an annual fundraiser allowing Talbert House to provide services at no charge to the fathers.
On Sunday, June 19, Talbert House will host its sixth annual Fatherhood Community Celebration, a free fun-filled day for dads and families to enjoy games, arts and crafts, sports activities, entertainment, food and beverages, and more. The celebration occurs annually on Father’s Day and features appearances from local bands, celebrities, and mascots.
