Ballard Spahr partner David J. Bodney was recognized along with three other men at the Father of the Year Awards dinner, hosted by The Father’s Day Council. Mr. Bodney currently serves on the national commission of the Anti-Defamation League and the national board of directors for the Lawyers’ Committee on Civil Rights Under Law.

The awards honor community leaders who have made family a priority while balancing demanding careers and philanthropic fundraising commitments. Proceeds from the dinner, held June 12 at The Arizona Biltmore, benefit the American Diabetes Association.

The Father’s Day Council and the American Diabetes Association have partnered to raise more than $35 million for the American Diabetes Association since 2000.
