SARASOTA, Fla. – Dads are everywhere in all shapes and sizes and Saturday many gathered in Sarasota to talk about the important job of fatherhood. The first Everything for Dads Convention took place Saturday at the Gulf Coast Event and Conference Center. It was the launch of a long-term grassroots movement designed to raise awareness of the increasing need for dads to be involved in parenting.

Father of seven and founder of the dads convention, Jim McKenzie, said “There are 24 million children growing up with out a father each year which leads to a whole host of problems with incarceration and child development that are carrying onto the next generation”. Mckenzie said the workshops and seminars were about respecting the role of fatherhood and redefining the parenting process.
