The Father of the Year Award is presented annually by the National Father’s Day Committee of the Father’s Day/Mother’s Day Council. Presentation of the award is accompanied by a comprehensive fundraising campaign benefitting the American Diabetes Association.

Three North Carolina lawyers, all members of the North Carolina Bar Association, will be among those honored at regional Father of the Year Awards dinners in 36 cities across the country this year.
