According to Fathers and Families’ website, The Faces of Fatherhood Luncheon was first held in 2005 to create public awareness of the important role fathers play in the lives of their children. During the luncheon, which is held every year on the Friday before Father’s Day, several fathers who have demonstrated the four dimensions of fatherhood–Involvement, Consistency, Awareness, and Nurturing–are presented with the Heart of a Father Award. This event also provides an opportunity to recognize the programs provided by this organization, and the positive impact on the Indianapolis community. This year’s event will be on June 16, from 11:45 am until 1:30 pm.
