ALBANY, GA (WALB) - It was a storybook evening for hundreds of dads and their daughters.

They arrived, all dressed up for the 11th annual Daddy Daughter dance at the Albany Civic Center.

Dads and their young dates took to the floor to dance the night away.

The event isn't only fun, it raises money for charities that serve girls.

"This is the one time anybody in the community that want to support a non-profit can get the most for their buck, tonight you're supporting three non-profits in Albany that are very involved in shaping the lives of young girls and developing the lives of families as a whole," said LaKisha Bryant, Girls Inc. Executive Director.

About 2,500 people were expected at the dance.

Last year, Girls Incorporated, Flint River Habitat for Humanity, and Girl Scouts got about $10,000 each from the fundraiser.
