MILWAUKEE -- Fathers For Progress on Sunday, June 16 hosted a Father's Day event in Sherman Park -- promoting unity and family values.

Families took part in morning worship services, and there was live entertainment, children's entertainment, complimentary food and beverages, karate demonstrations, a car show, and even free haircuts.

Organizers said the event was meant to inspire, motivate, and bring together families and neighbors.

"We want to show that there are many fathers that are involved in the lives of their children, and we also want to tell fathers that aren't, you can be restored back to your children, so Father's Day isn't always a day of celebration, but for many people, it's a day of restoration," said Andre Lee Ellis, organizer.

This was the 31st annual event, and organizers said attendance grows each year.
