Sparrow’s 9th Annual Dapper Dads Challenge & Fashion Show
- $5 - 60
- Washington Square, in front of Kositchek's in Downtown Lansing
- Lansing, MI United States
It's that time of year again!
Lansing's most Dapper men come together for a friendly competition to benefit a great cause, and strut their stuff down the runway! There's always lots of fun, and last year the Dapper Dads raised $600,000 to help patients right here in Mid-Michigan!
The 2018 Dapper Dads event will take place on Thursday, June 7th. Don't forget to vote for your favorite dad!
|The Dapper Dads Challenge and Fashion show consists of a campaign for online votes from the community, and the Dapper Dad's Fashion Show, which is the culmination of the challenge. Each vote costs $5 and is 100% tax-deductible; all proceeds support the mission of women's health. The suite of Dapper Dads in 2017 raised nearly $600,000 during the campaign, which lead to amazing competition and very creative performances on the runway during the Fashion Show!|
|Since its inception, this popular event hosted by Women Working Wonders (W3) and the Sparrow Foundation, has raised more than $1,600,000 in support of the physical and psychological health of women in mid-Michigan. Every year, local community leaders and professionals, who are passionate about supporting women's health in our region, are recruited to be a new suite of Dapper Dads and Dudes.|
|Founded in 2002 by Lansing entrepreneur Virginia Hilbert, the Sparrow Foundation’s Women Working Wonders (W3) Committee works tirelessly to support the physical and psychological health of women in mid-Michigan. The committee comprises more than 35 professional women from the Greater Lansing area. With the generous support of our community, W3 has raised more than $2.2 million for initiatives that advance women’s health. Its signature fundraisers are The Dapper Dads Challenge and Fashion Show, and Kaleidoscope.|
