More About Ryan

Gala Emcee


“There is no reason or excuse that a father can give for not wanting to share this time with his daughter. A lifetime of memories packed into one special evening. One that I will never forget. Thanks honey for inviting me.”

Robert O'Neal

“My daughter and I experienced the Father Daughter Gala for the first time in 2015. It drew us closer like never before. I encourage any man young or older to experience this with their daughter. It will strengthen the relationship and create memories that will last for a lifetime.”

james hefner

“The Father Daughter Gala has given me the most precious moments with my Daddy in my entire life. And even though he recently passed on, I can forever hold in my heart the memories of our annual date. My wish is that every "little girl" can experience such a gift.”

Ruth Eden-Garcia


Father of the year competition/Teams supporting non-profits


IEvery year, the Father Daughter Gala celebrates the family bond on Father’s Day. This year is no exception, and will be held on Sunday, June 17, 2018 at the Legends Club in Augusta. New this year, the O’Neal Foundation is excited to present their Inaugural Father of the Year Campaign. This program will add to the fundraising efforts the Gala provides to the local nonprofits it benefits.


The Father of the Year Campaign is a spirited, philanthropic competition designed to benefit each candidate’s chosen nonprofit. Candidates are a select group of honored individuals who are nominated for Father of the Year by their peers. They are dynamic, passionate, sometimes competitive, and from both social and business communities. The campaign is a great way for candidates and the fundraising teams they form to partner with other influential leaders in their communities to raise awareness and funds for their charities of choice.


Since 2008, the Father Daughter Gala has featured an evening of elegance with first-class entertainment, fine dining, dancing, and lifelong memories for fathers and daughters of all ages along with their families, friends, and neighbors. This year will not only highlight the Father of the Year, but will showcase many fun activities, silent auction, and a raffle. The Saturday Golf Tournament at First Tee preceding the Gala on Saturday, June 16, 2018 is yet another component of this weekend of excitement for families.
