LANSING, MI-Each year since 2010, some of Lansing's most Dapper men come together for a friendly competition to benefit a great cause, and strut their stuff down the LaFontaine Automotove Group runway! The 2018 Dapper Dads event will take place on Thursday, June 7, downtown at Kositchek's.


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.

When, Where & How!
Join us on Thursday, June 7th in Downtown Lansing at 113 N Washington Square. There will be a big tent set up and all kinds of fun to be had!

Watch the interview with Lansing Market President and Co-Chair of the Dapper Dads 2018 Charity Fundraiser, Patty Barnas.
