Malik Yoba and his daughters Dena (on his left) and Pria (on his right) attended the 9th annual ‘Date With Dad’ Dinner and Dance this past Saturday.
Hosted by Tom Joyner of “Tom Joyner Morning Show” and “Miss Community” Clovia Lawrence of Richmond’s 99.3 and 105.7 Kiss FM, the event featured dinner catered by Carrabba’s Italian Grill, live entertainment, contests, prizes, and of course, lots of dancing! Actor and Richmond native Chad L. Coleman of the hit AMC series “The Walking Dead” interviewed dads and daughters on the red carpet, and helped Girls For A Change honor five dads with Real Father Awards. Actor and Comedian Antoine Scott performed and entertained the fathers and daughters as well.
Date With Dad Weekend is three days full of events all aimed at nurturing father-daughter relationships. It is hosted by Camp Diva, a Richmond-based program of Girls For A Change, GFAC, “a non-profit that provides opportunities for teen girls to prepare themselves for their passage into womanhood”.
