Danny Weisberg – EVENT MANAGER
The Father Daughter Event (FDE) is our way of giving our daughters a day dedicated to them in a way only the men of Blood Soldiers can. This event will demonstrate that everything we do for them is done out of love and our fun way to provide for them. The men will project loving care in everything they do from the first meetings, to the event and even to striking the site. Our circle is powerful and within the walls of our arms, a strong bond is formed. It is a place where every daughter will feel safe. That feeling of safety will be provided by the men, whether they are serving a meal, leading an event or just hanging out with their daughters. The ceremonies will connect each Daughter to her dad in a meaningful, touching way. The activities will be fun for everyone, both Dads and Daughters. They will be outrageous, yet will honor their femininity. The meals will be simple, yet delicious, offering up a variety of dishes to satisfy everyone in attendance. The food will be served by a team of men who will show by their actions how special our daughters are to us. The day will be loaded with fun times and opportunities for spot welds to be built. Each Daughter will feel the love and care their Fathers and the men have for them. Each Father, and every man present, will stand tall as the Hero those girls need in their lives.
As a member of Blood Soldiers Men’s Division, I have learned a great deal about being a better father for my children Jacob, age 4 ½ and Lili, age 3. Being the event manager of this year’s Father-Daughter event is my way of giving back so others can have the opportunities that I have experienced. I am doing this for all those Dads who don’t get to spend as much time as they would like with their daughters. I am doing this for all you young ladies who want nothing more than a special day with your Dad. A day dedicated to you and your relationship with your Dad. A day filled with unforgettable moments that you will look back on 20 years from now. A day that will forever make you smile and really appreciate that special bond a Father has with his daughter.

It is an annual opportunity to renew and strengthen our father daughter bond. One of the greatest moments for me was to watch Lindsay fully enrolled and engaged as a fun loving participant having the time of her life and sharing her excitement with other girls.
Kevin Pusavat – Wellness Manager
Welcome to the 2014 Father Daughter Event that will be held on September 20, 2014.
As this year’s Wellness Manager, I would like to briefly introduce myself, explain why I think events like these are so important, and share some thoughts on this special day.
I am a board certified Internal Medicine physician and an Assistant Area Medical Director at South Bay Medical Center. This is a Kaiser Permanente facility located in Harbor City.
I first became involved with the Blood Soldier’s Men’s Division when I attended the Father Daughter Event (FDE) three years ago. It is an event designed to strengthen relationships between father’s and their daughters. At that time, I was experiencing great success in my career, but struggled with work life balance and having the kind of relationship that I wanted with my kids. I was asked by a friend to attend this event with his daughter. I did not know him that well but our daughters were good friends and it seemed like a good thing to do.
Almost three years later, I can honestly say that for me attending the FDE was the first step in getting much closer to my kids and becoming the man I wanted to be. My daughter and I had a great day together, but even then I did not realize how this day would change my relationship with her. During the event we shared some moments that will last years. Months to years later I feel the impact that investing that time had on both me and my daughter. It has also changed my priorities going forward.
As the wellness manager it is my vision to ensure men and their daughters feel and are safe while having outrageous fun. I am a small part of a team of men devoted to providing you with a day of memories that hopefully will last a life time.
If you want to improve your relationship with your daughter and show her how much you care. Don’t miss the incredible opportunity!
Alan Block – Website, Registration, Finance Manager
As a father of two grown daughters, I especially appreciate the special moments and bonding opportunities the Father Daughter Event offers. We have been able to participate in the event over the past two years and share in the activities and fun. Last year, my daughter and granddaughter came and we had an outstanding time together. We agreed, if an event such as this was available when my girls were still living at home, we would have jumped at the chance to be a part of it.
I view my role in bringing you the Father Daughter Event as that of a facilitator. First, putting our best foot forward with this website and delivering to you the information that will help inspire you to join us at Camp Josepho on September 20th. Second, making it as simple and quick as possible for you to register. And third, working the other men on the Production Team to facilitate the financial aspects of getting everything we need in place to make this day as special as we can. Because it matters so much to me, you can be sure I will do my very best in every aspect of my role.

Being a part of an event like this is what life is all about, being with the ones we love and having a chance to create memories that will last a lifetime. My daughters went for the first time last year to the FDE and we had a great time! This year we decided to have our daughters help take this event to the next level. After all, who knows better what girls like than girls! So, be prepared to have one of the best times of your life with your daughter (or to the daughters reading this) with your daddy! My daughters and I will make sure that every aspect of this event is girl approved and will blow your mind! From the moment you arrive until you are burning gas and going home you’ll be taken care of in the incredible Blood Soldier way. All the while creating some outrageously fun, intimate and long lasting memories.
