We’re excited to announce that TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Chief Operating Officer Jon Nobis will be taking center stage at the 8th annual Dapper Dads challenge and fashion show!
Nobis is one of 32 Michigan businessmen (and dads) competing to raise money for an important cause in mid-Michigan: women’s healthcare. The Dapper Dads event is hosted by the Sparrow Foundation’s Women Working Wonders (W3), an organization that promotes the physiological and psychological well being of local women through community outreach initiatives.
The dads are currently campaigning for votes to see who’s the dapper-est of them all, and the top 13 will be featured in the annual Dapper Dads calendar. Every vote costs $5, serving as a donation to benefit W3.
To contribute toward such a worthy cause (and in the hopes of landing Nobis in the calendar), TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Home Office held a charity bake-off to see who could create the tastiest dessert using Nobis’ favorite chocolate candies.
“Dapper Dads really has nothing to do with me, or a fashion show,” said Nobis. “It’s all about supporting women’s health in the mid-Michigan area.”
“I’m so proud of the care the entire TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® family shows our communities and the people around us,” Nobis said. “I am thankful for everyone’s support of Sparrow Hospital and the cause.”
Care — for family, customers, coworkers, and the community — is just one of the core values that TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® holds near and dear. The opportunity to improve women’s lives with W3 means the world to us.
“Being a Dapper Dad is about giving back to the community for an important cause,” Nobis said. “For all of us, if we don’t have our health, we have nothing. For me in particular, I have a wife and a daughter, and God only knows what kind of woman each of my five sons is going to need to keep them in order someday. I pray we always have access to the best healthcare so they can share their gifts with the community around them.”
Nobis’ plan for working the runway in the Dapper Dad’s fashion show is to bring his six children onstage with him, diverting the crowd’s attention.
“I have a couple of teenage sons who think they can rap,” he added.
To show your support for Jon Nobis, you can contribute a $5 vote for him (all proceeds go to W3, of course!) until Wednesday, June 7. The Dapper Dads Fashion Show will take place at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, June 8 at Kositchek’s in downtown Lansing, MI.
“Usually, being ‘dapper’ in my everyday life means just not embarrassing myself with what I wear,” Nobis joked. “But being a dad is the most important thing in my life. I can’t wait to represent TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® as a Dapper Dad for such a worthy cause.”
