The second annual All Pro Dad Father & Kids Experience will be held at the Jaguars Practice Field adjacent to Jacksonville Municipal Stadium on Saturday, November 17, 2007, from 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm. The gathering is presented by First Guaranty Bank and is being hosted by Jaguars Long Snapper Joe Zelenka and Defensive Back Terry Cousin.
Founded by Family First, the All Pro Dad fatherhood program helps to educate fathers on the best ways to become an "All Pro Dad." Fathers are encouraged to bring their children to the event, where they will learn fatherhood tips and participate in special activities with their kids, while rotating through football-themed learning stations located around the fields.
"The Jaguars are a world-class football organization," said Mark Merrill, All Pro Dad President. "We're very excited about how they have committed to helping Jacksonville area families by hosting the 2nd annual All Pro Dad Father and Kids Experience."
"We're excited to support a program that helps build stronger relationships between dads and their kids", noted First Guaranty Bank's President Jay Fant.
