Dancing the night away
Daddy/Daughter Dance this weekend
The popular Daddy/Daughter Dance is back for 2019. The annual event will be on Saturday, Feb. 9 at Warehouse 51 at 1851 Indian Trail in Tallassee.
This year, proceeds will go to the Mount Vernon Theatre.
"Tickets are $25 a couple and $30 for a dad that has multiple daughters," said Brooke Rigsby of the Mount Vernon Theatre operations board. "The only request we do have is ask that mamas don't come. Moms, go enjoy your night without dad and daughter for a little bit. It's for daddies and their daughters."
The theme is, "A Night in Hollywood."
"We've got a red carpet. If the girls want to dress to the theme they can. They don't have to," Rigsby added. "Laurie Rygiel has gotten some businesses to graciously donate some food. There are two sessions, from 4-6 and 7-9.
Last year's event was a great success, Rigsby noted.
"We had almost 300 people there. It was great. Our plan is to sell 150 per session. Everything goes toward the Mount Vernon Theatre. We're still doing our sponsorship drive."
Tickets are available at Rigsby's Studio B Dance Center from 3-7 p.m., Monday - Thursday.
