SMOKEY ROBINSON ANNOUNCES THE LAUNCH OF FATHER DAUGHTER DAY ON OCTOBER 8TH

The Annual Holiday Will Take Place On October 8, 2017 And Will Continue Each Year On The Second Sunday Of October
New York, N.Y. (September 6, 2017) – Legendary singer-songwriter Smokey Robinson may be known for his incredible songs, but he is about to add “holiday creator” to his list of achievements with the launch of “Father Daughter Day.” The annual holiday will take place on October 8, 2017 and will continue each year on the second Sunday of October. “Father Daughter Day” has already been accepted into Chase’s Calendar of Events and will be included in their 2018 edition which is available now.
“As an honored father of six beautiful daughters, the father/daughter relationship is one I have cherished for decades,” says Robinson. He goes on, “There are many different kinds of families today, and we know that all parental relationships are important to the healthy development of children, but the father/daughter bond is unique and one that is near to my heart.”
Robinson feels strongly that a positive connection between a man and his daughter can have a tremendous impact on a young girl’s life and play a big role in her development into a strong, confident woman who knows her value adding, “The father/daughter relationship shapes a young woman’s perspective of men and what to expect from them. I believe that female empowerment begins in the home and fathers must set a healthy example through their personal actions and interactions.”
We honor mothers and fathers individually with special days, and we hear a lot about the importance of male role models in a boy’s life, but with this holiday, Smokey would like his fans to celebrate and nurture the special bond that exists between fathers and their daughters.
