Dad of the Year: Mr. Donny Williams

WYBC is proud to congratulate Mr. Donny Williams of New Haven, our WYBC Dad of the Year Winner for 2022!

Donny was nominated by his wife Samantha.

From Samantha:

He is a great father, he works extremely hard to make sure our 8-year-old son, Donny Jr. never wants for anything. He sacrifices so much to make sure our family is well provided for, and Donny Jr. loves spending time with him working in the yard, helping around the house and trying new dishes at local restaurants. They love octopus, escargot, and all things seafood!

Donny will receive a framed certificate, a gift card to Sports Center of Connecticut, tickets to a Connecticut Sun basketball game and dinner for 2 at Ricky D’s Rib Shack in New Haven!

Happy Father’s Day!
