Dads' Night 25 Logo for Site (1).png


2024 marks a milestone for Lincoln Dads’ Night as we commemorate our 25th anniversary, a testament to the power of community and tradition.

It all began in 1999, a visionary spark from Bill Gatoni and Steve Kolenack, who assembled the first Dads’ Night band, laying the foundation for what would become Lincoln’s iconic variety show. Dr. Mary Orr, then the principal, saw the potential and gave her unwavering support to this budding tradition. In 2006, Mike Panayos elevated our technical prowess, demonstrating commitment and skill that continues to dazzle us. As years unfolded, cherished traditions were born, including t-shirt designs and skit challenges that stoked creativity and camaraderie.

Our stage has been graced by celebrities such as the Jonas Brothers, Kaity Tong, and Bob Simon, and our humorous skits have found their way onto YouTube and even into a Subway commercial, showcasing the boundless spirit and joy our dads bring to the community. With Mr. Patrick Lee at the helm since 2015, his dual role as principal and enthusiastic participant has been instrumental in nurturing the show’s legacy and impact.

Beyond the laughter and entertainment, Dads’ Night has been a powerful force for good, raising over half a million dollars for our community. But perhaps its greatest achievement lies in the priceless connections it has fostered—lifelong friendships, joyous moments for our children, and cherished family memories that are truly invaluable.

As we celebrate this silver anniversary, we extend our deepest gratitude for your unwavering support. Together, we’ve not only built a tradition but a legacy of unity, joy, and giving that will inspire future generations. Thank you for being an integral part of this journey.

Dads' Night

Dads' Night

The Dads of Lincoln Elementary School of Wyckoff started Dad's Night in 1999 as a way to bring together the community and raise money for Lincoln Elementary Schools. Once a year, Lincoln School Dads entertain their Lincoln School Students & Families with a 90-minute production of silly skits, songs, and commercials put on by Lincoln School Dads.  In addition, we use the event as a fundraiser for the Lincoln School PTO and work with great sponsors to bring together families for a family friendly evening of fun and laughs.
