All Star Weekend: Dwayne Wade & White House Staff Hosts Fatherhood Roundtable

This morning, D. Wade kicked off his NBA All Star Weekend with a little giving back.  The proud father hosted a Fatherhood Heroes roundtable with White House official Joshua Dubois.  Dubios is Special Assistant to the President and Executive Director of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.  

The rountable was held at Orlando City Hall.  The focus was to let fathers now how important it is for them to be actively involved in their children's lives, both physically and mentally.   

After the roundtable he went to Tangelo Park Elementary School to head the "Work Hard, Play Hard" rally and unveil new basketball courts. Saturday, he plans to attend a fundraiser for Tangelo Park Program, an educational initiative, where Grammy Award-winning artist Estelle is slated to perform. (Huffington Post)

Dwayne's been a part of the President's Fatherhood & Mentoring Initiative since June 2010.

I love how involved the White House is with this weekend's NBA All Star Weekend, especially since the weekend attracts so many children and families.
