    Default Bill Clinton Named 'Father of the Year'

    Clinton was named the “Father of the Year” by the National Father’s Day Council on Wednesday.

    "We are extremely honored to have President Clinton accept this award for Father of the Year," said Dan Orwig, Chairman of the National Father`s Day Committee. "With the profound generosity, leadership and tireless dedication to both his public office and many philanthropic organizations, President Clinton exemplifies the attributes that we celebrate through the father of the year award."

    The awards will be presented at the 72nd Annual Father of the Year Awards in New York City June 11, 2013.

    Here is the full announcement:

    The National Father`s Day Council announced today that it has selected President Bill Clinton, Founder of the William J. Clinton Foundation and 42nd President of the United States, as a 2013 "Father of the Year" Award recipient. The awards will be presented at the 72nd Annual Father of the Year Awards in New York City on Tuesday, June 11, 2013.

    With proceeds benefitting Save the Children`s U.S. Programs, the awards luncheon will take place at 12:00 p.m. at the Grand Hyatt New York Hotel. For tickets and sponsorship, please contact the Council office at 212-594-5977 or www.momanddadday.com.


    President Clinton was elected into the office of President in 1992 and served two consecutive terms (1993 - 2001). Under his leadership, the country enjoyed the strongest economy in a generation and the longest economic expansion in U.S. history, including the creation of more than 22 million jobs.

    After leaving the White House, President Clinton established the William J.Clinton Foundation with the mission to improve global health, strengthen
    economies, promote healthier childhoods, and protect the environment by
    fostering partnerships among governments, businesses, nongovernmental
    organizations (NGOs), and private citizens to turn good intentions into
    measurable results. Today the Foundation has staff and volunteers around the world working to improve lives through several initiatives, including the Clinton Health Access Initiative (formerly the Clinton HIV/AIDS Initiative), which is helping nearly 5 million people living with HIV/AIDS access lifesaving drugs. Since 2005, the Clinton Global Initiative has brought together global leaders to devise and implement innovative solutions to some of the world`s most pressing issues. In the U.S., the Foundation is working to combat the alarming rise in childhood obesity through the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, and is helping individuals and families succeed and small businesses grow.

    In 2009, President Clinton was named U.N. Special Envoy for Haiti to assist the government and the people of Haiti as they "build back better" after a series of hurricanes battered the country in 2008. Following 2010`s devastating earthquake, President Clinton dedicated Clinton Foundation resources to help with immediate and long term relief and assistance, and at the request of President Obama, joined with President George W. Bush to establish the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund, which supports highly effective organizations on the ground in long-term rebuilding efforts.

    President Clinton was born on August 19, 1946, in Hope, Arkansas. He and his wife Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton have one daughter, Chelsea, and live in Chappaqua, New York.

    "We are extremely honored to have President Clinton accept this award for Father of the Year," said Dan Orwig, Chairman of the National Father`s Day Committee, VP, Group Director Men`s Division Itochu Prominent, "With the profound generosity, leadership and tireless dedication to both his public office and many philanthropic organizations, President Clinton exemplifies the attributes that we celebrate through the father of the year award."

    As part of its commitment to support meaningful philanthropies dealing with issues affecting mothers, fathers and children, the National Father`s
    Day/Mother`s Day Council, Inc. has donated more than $30 million to date to meaningful charities nationwide.

    I'm a conservative that actually really likes Bill Clinton, and I think this is just so damn funny.

    Bill Clinton as father of the year, hah!

    Are we counting all his kids, or just Chelsea?
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Reminds me of that episode of "Beavis and Butthead" where Clinton presented the boys with the "Student of the Year" award.

    Who's mother of the year? Courtney Love?
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.
