Monday, June 15, 2015
Lansing, June 15 – Congratulations to Fred Schaard, president of Rehmann Financial, for being named the top “Dapper Dad” for the second time in three years.
“Dapper Dads” is a program of the Sparrow Foundation, which supports the physical and psychological health of women in the Lansing area. “Dapper Dads” participants elicit sponsorship support from friends, family, clients and colleagues – as well as audience members – as they walk a runway during a show that features equal parts fun and fundraising.
Each vote cast for a “Dad” cost $5, which goes to the Sparrow Foundation. (Votes were cast before and during the event.)
“I have thoroughly enjoyed raising funds for the Sparrow Foundation,” said Schaard. “This is a really fun event benefitting a worthy cause, and I’ve felt honored to take part in it over the last few years.”
Fred raised a total of more than $66,000 this year, bringing his three year total to $114,000 raised for the Sparrow Foundation.
