 Congratulations to Mr. Steve Binioris, of Jackson National Life, who was crowned the Fifth Annual Dapper Dads Challenge and Fashion Show Champion on June 5, 2014. With more than 14,206 votes, Steve managed to raised over $71,030 for women's health initiatives.


The Fifth Annual Dapper Dads Challenge and Fashion show raised more than $325,000. Since its inception this popular event, hosted by Women Working Wonders (W3) and the Sparrow Foundation, has raised more than $825,000 in support of the physical and psychological health of women in mid-Michigan. Every year, local community leaders and professionals are recruited to be new suite of Dapper Dads and Dudes, who are passionate about supporting women's health in our region.


The Dapper Dads Challenge consists of two parts: a campaign for online votes from the community, and the Dapper Dad's Fashion show, which is the culmination of the challenge. Each vote costs $5 and is completely tax-deductible; all proceeds support the mission of women's health. This year, the campaign kicked off in early March and ran through June 4, 2014. This year's Dads scored record-breaking numbers of votes during the campaign, which lead to amazing competition and very creative performances on the runway during the Fashion Show. 


Women Working Wonders and the Sparrow Foundation would like to extend a very special thank you to all of the Dapper Dads and Dudes who gave of their time and their talents to compete in this challenge; also to our generous partners, Kositchek's and The University Club of Michigan State University, whose support of this event is so greatly appreciated; and finally, to our volunteers, without whose hands and hearts, this event would not be possible. We'd also like to thank our Exclusive Runway sponsor: Auto-Owner's Insurance.
