TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® CEO Jeff Wesley is participating in the 7th annual Dapper Dads Challenge and Fashion Show hosted by the Sparrow Foundation’s Women Working Wonders (W3). He is among the roster of Michigan business and community leaders competing to support women’s health through the fundraiser.
These dads campaign to receive $5 votes that benefit W3 who strive to support the physical and psychological health of women throughout mid-Michigan. In addition to taking part in a runway fashion show in downtown Lansing, Mich., the top 13 contestants are featured in the Dapper Dads calendar.
Previous TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Dapper Dads include Executive Chairman Brig Sorber and President Randy Shacka, who claimed 13th place in 2015.
“Randy is pretty dapper, and so was Brig!” said Wesley. “It would be great to stay in the top 13 but at the end of the day, I hope Dapper Dads raises more money for a good cause. If that happens and I can contribute, that is a good day.”
The opportunity to give back to the community and help those in need is a core value TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® holds near to our hearts.
“I am most excited to help Sparrow. As a hospital it is so important to so many people to continue to expand in scope and capabilities. Many people, families, and this community depend on the support. Dapper Dads allows me the chance to give back on behalf of myself and TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®,” said Wesley. “Plus it may be a little fun!”
Having admitted to never being in a runway show before, he joked it never quite made it on his bucket list but is sure it will be an unforgettable experience.
Jeff’s not the only one making playful jokes, his two daughters, Erin and Emily, are getting in on the fun, too! They have been sharing first-hand why they think he is a Dapper Dad with reasons ranging from his great taste in wine to playing in the snow. The girls have also shared heartwarming stories such as how he always puts his family first, has taught them how to cook, and that he has a good heart.
“I love my daughters, they are two of the biggest blessings I have in my life. To walk, laugh, cry, and celebrate life’s journey with them is one of the things that I have to celebrate and thank God for every day,” said Wesley. “I am so blessed for who they are. I will take every minute of goodness I can get with them.”
You can support Jeff in the Dapper Dads Challenge by voting for him until Wednesday, June 8! Attend the fashion show to watch him work the runway at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, June 9 at Kositcheck’s in downtown Lansing, Mich.
