Since 2010, the local Father’s Day Council has honored 29 men from Riverside and San Bernardino Counties, including many Corona locals: Bobby Spiegel of the Corona Chamber of Commerce, Michael Vasquez of Miguel’s Restaurants, Dean Seif of All-Star Collision and Seif Insurance, Ross Newhan of the Los Angeles Times and Jim Steiner from the Corona Fire Department. Father of the Year Award Dinners are hosted in 30 cities across the country as a result of a longstanding partnership between the American Diabetes Association and the Father’s Day Council. In each city, local councils are comprised of volunteer community leaders who strive to heighten the meaning of fatherhood, while raising funds benefiting the American Diabetes Association. The purpose of this award is to recognize men who have made family a priority, while balancing a demanding career and community involvement. Awardees are selected because their peers and family recognize them as a role model father. Some notable past honorees have included Gen. Douglas MacArthur in 1942, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Robert F. Kennedy, Babe Ruth, Frank Sinatra, and Humphrey Bogart. May 24, 2017 Riverside Convention Center For more info: DaMurphy@diabetes.org
