F&F 2019

Thank you to everyone who participated in Fathers & Flashlights 2019, and in particular to the sponsors and underwriters.  


255 dads and 527 children camped and over 250 mom/parent volunteers helped make the campout an over the top success.  The event raised over $156,000 for West U parks and green spaces.  Thank you to the event chairs who gave it their all:  The Huth, Morrison and Parker Families.  Don’t worry, they are chairing it again for 2020!
