On Feb. 3 and 4 ,Valdosta’s First Presbyterian Church is hosting their 16th Annual Father Daughter Dance at the James H. Rainwater Conference Center.
This event is for fathers and daughters of all ages. There are two sessions: Friday 6 to 8p.m. and Saturday 9 to11p.m. Fathers and Daughters may attend both nights.
Tickets are online at www.fatherdaughterdance.org and start at $10.00 with a $2.00 processing fee.
When Co-founder Jeff Stewart started this event 16 years ago, 175 fathers and daughters attended which was more than what was expected.
The year after, the dance took place in our very own Woman’s Building where 425 people attended. Each year the number of people that attended increased, which is why it has now moved to the James H. Rainwater Conference Center. The number of tickets sold last year reached up to 4,800.
The dance is suitable and close to restaurants nearby. Light refreshments will be provided but reservations for dinner should be made prior to the dance. Glamour Shots Studio will be taking pictures at the event and have special packages available for the dance. Sunday dress is the suggested attire for the dance. For those that are interested, T-shirts are also available online on the dance website. The music is family friendly, so everyone is ready for a great time.
There are Father Daughter dances in other locations for those who cannot attend: Waycross on Feb.25, Buford on Feb.4, and Barnesville on Feb. 11.
Proceeds from this dance will go to the First Presbyterian Church for their ministry services.
There are also opportunities for people that want to volunteer with decorating, serve refreshments, etc.
