Oprah Partners with Hilton to Gift One of Her Favorite Vacations During an Unforgettable Father’s Day Surprise
Last night, Oprah Winfrey hosted Honoring Our Kings: OWN Celebrates Black Fatherhood, her first-ever Father’s Day special—a show that ended with a fantastic surprise.
The special, which she hosted along with two-time Emmy-Award winning actor (and father-of-two) Sterling K. Brown, shared the stories of everyday and celebrity dads, each of whom take pride in their roles as fathers, while also serving as inspirational leaders for others. The purpose behind the special was to showcase the full scope of fatherhood in the Black community.
As an additional surprise, Oprah partnered with Hilton to gift five of these stand-out fathers with complimentary trips to one of her favorite vacation destinations: the Grand Wailea, Waldorf Astoria Resort in Maui.
“We are thrilled that Oprah thought our spectacular resort in Hawaii would be the perfect place to host these fathers and celebrate the amazing impact they are having on families beyond their own,” said Chris Nassetta, president and CEO of Hilton. “We are honored to play a part in recognizing Black fathers–whose inspiring stories too often go untold.”
