Father’s day is not until Sunday but one organization started the celebration early.

Forever Dads threw its All Star Dad’s Day early Saturday. The event has taken place for the last 10 years. Beth Chapman is a volunteer at Dad’s Day and says she was compelled to get involved.

"I had luckily a very influential father and I know the importance of trying to support the father kid connection, " said Chapman

To pay for the special day Forever Dads applies for grant money through the Walmart Foundation. Merchandise Manager at Sam’s Club, Doug Lucas says that Sam’s club enjoys supporting groups that benefit the youth and they have worked with Forever Dads for the last 4 years. He says they don’t do this for the recognition but for the good of the community.

"I see a lot of fathers here interacting with their children and it just show you that with our busy schedules everybody has its good to see an organization take the time to put this together, "said Lucas.
