Bereaved Father’s Day

We have set aside the Sunday before Father’s Day each year to honor the dads who hold children – of any age – in their hearts instead of their arms. Our foundation recognizes this day in a couple of different ways, as we know that Father’s Day can feel different for fathers who have experienced a loss.

A Day for Dads, Bereaved Father's Day


A Day for Dads – June 9, 2024

We invite the men in our community to come out for free food, free beer and some friendly competition with other men in our community. We are honoring fatherhood on this day – fathers with children here, children in heaven, and children hoped for. Come out, bring a friend, and show support for the men in this community!

What to expect:

  • Free Craft beer
  • Free non-alcoholic drinks
  • Free Appetizers
  • Free Cornhole tournament, with a prize for the winning team!

*Some prizes include*

  • Part of a car driven and signed by NASCAR driver Ross Chastain
  • 2 buckets of balls at Golf Village downstairs
  • Cutco
  • Bourbon
  • and more!

Free Father’s Day Gifts

Each year, thanks to sponsors and partner vendors, we provide and ship free gifts for you to send to any father who has lost a child. One of our main missions is that bereaved families would feel loved and supported by their own communities of friends and family.

Fill out the form to order a gift for yourself or to send to a friend. If on a mobile device, scroll down a ways to find the form.

This year’s gifts are funded by our church partner, Resurrection Church in Charlotte, NC.
