"Doing Dads Proud" will take place at Cotton Tree Park on Fathers' Day, Sunday, 6th Sept 2009.

With 10 years of experience under its belt, Lifeline Community Care Sunshine Coast's annual Father's Day celebration "Doing Dads Proud" is now the biggest Father's Day event in South-East Queensland.

"Doing Dads Proud" is a multi award winning event, winning the 2003, 2005 and 2006 Australia Day Awards for Best Community Event and the Fisher Community Australia Day Award for 2004.

The event program runs from 10.00am to 4.00pm and will focus on the many different fathering roles that exist in families and within the Sunshine Coast community. Families from across the region can benefit from this celebration by bringing the family down to Cotton Tree Park to be involved in the days' activities.

Whether by relaxing with the family or taking part in the many activities, competitions, pony rides, mini market place, show bags, food stalls, boys toys displays, interactive displays, workshops, petting zoo, free rides and entertainment and free entry into Cotton Tree Pool, the young and young at heart will have the best Father's Day at "Doing Dads Proud".

Talented performing artists from across the Sunshine Coast will showcase the diverse talents of the region throughout the 6 hour event. Volunteers from various community groups and regional organisations will also assist on the day. These groups will provide valuable information about their services which will be an integral part of the celebration.

So whether you're a young dad, old dad, new dad, community dad, part-time dad, foster dad, step-dad or granddad, there will be something for every kind of dad and their families at "Doing Dads Proud".
