Strengthening the Bonds that Shape the Future

Daddy and daughter—it's one of the strongest bonds in life—and this precious relationship is a powerful first exposure to self-esteem. It sets the scene for how they feel they should be treated, making fathers hugely important when it comes to their daughter's early self-worth. The ASYMCA of Alaska believes that this bond is critical to the healthy development of young women and deserves an event dedicated to nurturing this bond, regardless of age.

Due to COVID-19 precautions, we are not hosting a traditional Father Daughter gala this year, but we invite you to the following Father Daughter experiences in Fairbanks and Anchorage.
