THE CHARIT Y

Save the Children believes every child deserves a future. In the United States and around the world, we give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. We do whatever it takes for children— every day and in times of crisis—transforming their lives and the future we share. Since 1932, Save the Children has worked across rural America, providing early education and feeding programs and helping ensure children are ready for success in school and in life. With a grassroots network of more than 375,000 people across all 50 states and the District of Columbia, Save the Children, in partnership with our advocacy arm Save the Children Action Network, also serves as the voice for kids by advocating for increased access to high-quality early learning and ending child hunger in the U.S.

Ashok C. Sani—husband, father, philanthropist, and businessman— embodied all this is good, and lived his life according to the basic principles of concern, care, thought, and action. The Father’s Day/Mother’s Day Council honors him through the industry he loved by naming the “All-Star” Dad Award in his memory. As with all his accomplishments and success, he truly exemplified, honored, and respected everything that an “All-Star” Dad represents. Sani will be missed in this life, but will be remembered always.


MASTER OF CEREMONIES MARK K. SHRIVER

Mark K. Shriver is Special Advisor at Save the Children, where he provides strategic guidance to the President and CEO and supports efforts to raise visibility, awareness, and funds for the agency and to advance policy change at the federal, state, and local levels. Shriver joined Save the Children in 2003 and developed the agency’s domestic early childhood education programs, which today reach children in more than 300 rural communities. He also created Save the Children’s domestic emergencies programs to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all children when disaster strikes. An advocate for children throughout his career, Shriver led a national coalition that convinced Congress to create the National Commission on Children and Disasters. He was appointed to the commission by Senator Harry Reid and elected chairperson by his fellow commissioners; he served in that role for the life of the commission (2008-2011). In 2013, Shriver created Save the Children’s political advocacy arm, Save the Children Action Network (SCAN). SCAN seeks to build bipartisan solutions and generate voter support for policies that ensure that every child has an equal opportunity to succeed. With a grassroots network that spans all 50 states, SCAN advocates for high-quality early learning and ending child hunger in the U.S., the safety of children arriving at the southern U.S. border, and educating and protecting kids around the world. Shriver received his B.A. from The College of the Holy Cross and a Master’s in Public Administration from Harvard University. A bestselling author, he has written three books, 10 Hidden Heroes, Pilgrimage: My Search for the Real Pope Francis, and A Good Man: Rediscovering My Father, Sargent Shriver. Shriver and his wife, Jeanne, live in Maryland and have three children, Molly, Tommy, and Emma.

Day has coached 12 first-team All-Americans, four Heisman Trophy finalists, five consecutive Big Ten Quarterback of the Year honorees and three Chicago Tribune Silver Football award winners. In the classroom, his Buckeyes have set program records for number of OSU Scholar-Athletes (61 in 2020-21) and Academic All-Big Ten Conference honorees (46 in 2021).
