Dave Is For Dads

With the recession still having a devastating effect on many people -- especially fathers -- CBS Triple A WZGC (DAVE FM)/ATLANTA Morning host JIMMY BARON decided to do something about it.
This past TUESDAY (3/23) BARON launched an event called "Dads Between Gigs" at the Monkey Joes indoor playground in Roswell, GA. It was a chance for fathers and their kids to gather together to play and make new friends.
BARON said he has been in the position of being between gigs many times himself and he knows how hard it is for Dads to reach out and support each other. He also understands that this can be viewed as a great opportunity to spend quality time with your children
He was quoted as saying this in a local TV interview about the event: "People ask me, 'what kind of advice can you give me?' I would say 'be real thankful that you're getting this kind of time with your children because you'll go back to work and then you'll only get to see them an hour or two a day again, and you'll want that time back.’"
BARON plans to host a Dads Between Gigs play date every month. More details to follow.
