Albany- As fathers across South Georgia prepare for the 8th Annual Daddy-Daughter Dance, organizers say the most important thing this year is having a purpose to help young girls and their families.
Kristal Baranko of the Girl Scouts says it takes all three organizations involved, "Flint River Habitat for Humanity, Girls, Inc. of Albany, and the Girl Scouts working together to help build relationships in the community through fostering relationships with girls and their families."
LaKisha Bryant, Executive Director of Girls, Inc. says the dance has grown. "When it first began we had around 180 people, but last year we had over 2,000 and more are expected to come this year."
That, according to Bryant, is a good thing. "Dads and daughters will get a picture, good food, music and most importantly, dancing. For young girls who have a male role model, not their dad, such as a brother, uncle or other type of father figure, they, too, are encouraged to attend.
The event will take place at the Albany Civic Center Friday, January 3, 2006, 7:00PM to 9:00PM. The cost of tickets per dad and daughter are $25.00 and $35.00 the day of the dance.
