The DADLY Rally is coming to L.A., and is looking for moms who want to brag about the dads in their lives. Prior to its March 19 Los Angeles event at Kellogg Center at Cal Poly Pomona, the DADLY Rally is holding an essay contest with a $1,000 prize.
Moms first register the dad they want to brag about through the DADLY Rally website (www.dadlyrally.com), then submit a 250-word essay explaining why this dad is so great. Based on these essays, the DADLY Rally Committee will select one dad to receive a $1,000 cash prize.
Deadline to submit essays is March 1, and only the first 250 entrants will be eligible for the prize. Also, the dad in the essay must be present at the DADLY Rally to win.
The first DADLY Rally promises a culture of support, ideas and collaboration for dads who want to raise their dad game. Speakers at the event will include mindfulness expert Jay Forte, L.A. radio host and work/life balance expert Ally Loprete, and DADLY Rally founders and authors Hogan Hilling and Shawn Fludd.
Later in the day there will be dads-only and moms-only discussion forums led by facilitators. The groups will reunite for a general assembly and share insights gained from their respective groups.
Comic Relief: The Funny Side of Motherhood and Comic Relief: The Funny Side of Fatherhood come next, with comedians Stefanie Wilder-Taylor and Chris Mancini sharing humorous insights on parenting.
A “Post-Game Show” rounds out the day, giving attendees the chance to enjoy casual conversation and networking, and have books signed by authors at the rally.
Early-bird registration of $99 is available until Feb. 1. Registration after Feb. 1 is $129. Learn more at www.dadlyrally.com.
