— An organization aimed at preventing senseless acts of violence gathered in Music City on Saturday night.

Dad's Against Destruction is a local group of fathers who believe dads can make a difference.

The group hosted a dinner in north Nashville honoring dads who make a difference.

The organization says a positive influence can lead to positive change.

"We got men out here that's really trying to be positive in the community with their kids, and it's not always something negative," said Phillip Hawkins with Dad's Against Destruction.
