Dads and daughters dance the night away

By Judy Reed

A special night for dads and daughters turned out to be the biggest one yet. Over 260 people attended the 6th annual Daddy Daughter dance last Saturday, February 6, at Cedar Springs Middle School.

“This dance is becoming a staple event in the community,” said Amanda Gerhardt, director of Cedar Springs Area Parks and Recreation, who put on the dance.

Girls attending the dance ranged in age from 2-1/2 to 14. They made teddy bear Valentine necklaces, got their photos taken (which was included in the price) and snacked on mini éclairs, petit fours, cookies, candies, mint and enjoyed a sherbet based punch.

Dads and daughters dance to the music of a DJ, who spins the music with his own daughter. Flowers from a local flower shop are given away to the girls, and they have a chance to make their own special stuffed bears as well. Goody bags were also given away throughout the night. The big winner was Cloe Shoffner and her dad, Matt, who won tickets to the 2011 dance.

Gerhardt said the dance helps families to forget about their problems for one night. “We are hoping to help shine a bright spot on just one day and to make joyful memories that will last a lifetime,” she said.
