Save the date for this fun opportunity for dads to take their daughters out for an evening of fun and dancing. This yearly ball has become a favorite local tradition with 300+ coming for a special night out together.
All ages are welcome, though the dance is most frequented by girls ages 3 – 14. We broaden ‘dads’ to include other adult escorts of the girls’ choice.
Not much of a dancer? No matter; John Travolta’s dancing skills are not required when the DJ plays “YMCA”. It’s simply an evening to put on your best duds, get goofy on the dance floor, have a nice photo taken together and visit with other dads and daughters.
Your all-inclusive ticket includes sweet refreshments, a digital photo (available online 4 weeks after the dance), and a raffle ticket for a chance at door prizes! Tickets are $30 in advance/$35 at the door (if space is available). Tickets for additional daughters: $15/each.
