Fan favorite Joe Zelenka will be joining Jacksonville dads and their kids as host of the All Pro Dad Father & Kids Experience to be held at the Jaguars practice fields on Saturday, October 25th from 2:00 until 5:00 p.m. The event, presented by First Guaranty Bank, is an afternoon of fun activities through which men can also get practical ideas on being better fathers.
All Pro Dad helps educate fathers on how to become "All Pro Dads." Fathers are encouraged to bring their children to the event, where they will receive fatherhood tips and participate in special activities with their kids, while rotating through football-themed learning stations located around the practice field.
"Thousands of men around the world are becoming better husbands and fathers by joining our All Pro Dad team," said All Pro Dad spokesman Joe Zelenka. "To become an All Pro Dad, we encourage men to spend one minute a day reading our free daily email - The Play of the Day - one hour a month participating in an All Pro Dad's Day breakfast, and one day a year taking part in our 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.
