New York, NY— Eli Manning started his Father’s Day celebrations early last Wednesday, supporting Oral-B’s Power of Dad campaign in partnership with the March of Dimes. Manning, his wife, Abby, and Ava, one of his two daughters, spent time at the Studio Arte gallery in the company of 40 other families.
“Winning football games is an incredible feeling, but there’s still nothing quite like throwing around the football with my dad in the front yard like I used to as a kid, or tucking my daughters in at night,” said Manning in a press release. “That’s why I’m proud to partner with Oral-B and March of Dimes this Father’s Day – to celebrate those little moments between fathers and children, no matter where they live or what they do.”
The campaign honored fathers and invited people to share their fatherhood moments via the hashtag #powerofdad. In addition, a portion of the proceed’s from the event will benefit the March of Dimes organization. For more than 75 years, the March of Dimes has been kick-starting healthy lives within the United States and globally through research, prevention and education beginning at pregnancy and continuing into the early years of life.
“This Father’s Day, we want to celebrate dads by giving them the power to keep smiling,” said Michelle Lohman, communications manager for Oral-B in a press release. “Oral-B power brushes help keep dads’ smiles healthy and beautiful, every step of the way.”
