Founded in Queensland in 2015, when 4 mates went to watch the Socceroos take on Korea in an Asian Cup match at Suncorp Stadium and realised they had 10 daughters between them and no sons! We are a nonprofit organisation made up of a group of fathers of only girls. We are focused on creating a network of like minded fathers, who share experiences and learnings as we navigate a life with daughters.
We come together annually over lunch with the aim of raising money for local organisations that support girls in a positive and encouraging manner - something we all want for our daughters.
Annually the FOGS get together at a CBD venue for a long lunch. The opportunity for you is networking, hearing from inspirational speakers and sharing experiences with other blokes in a similar boat to you - we all learn from each other. During the event there are also opportunities to contribute to fund raising activities that go towards a local organisation that supports the needs of girls in our community.
Longer term FOGS intend to line up supplementary events where members can take their daughters to coordinated activities as volunteers, teaching our girls what it means to give to others, why that's important and how to selflessly contribute to the community in which they live.
