BROOKLYN - Some fathers in Bedford-Stuyvesant got special recognition on Father's Day.

The community group Five Hundred Men Making A Difference gathered dads from all over the community for its third annual Father's Day picture.

Organizers say the aim is to showcase men who are involved in their children's lives to serve as an inspiration to the community.

The fathers who participated were rewarded with a coupon to sporting goods store Modell's. The dad who came with the most children got a $100 Modell's gift card.
