Daddy Daughter Dance
DDD2013We will be hosting our annual Daddy Daughter Dance on Saturday, February 10, from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. at North Cobb High School in the Cafeteria.  

This year we will be hosting a Hawaiian Luau!  

We invite all girls ages 13 and under to attend our Hawaiian Luau with their dads or adult male escort.  The daddy-daughter duos will dress in their Hawaiian shirts and grass skirts and dance the night away!  It will be a great opportunity for dads and their daughters to spend a special evening together. 

The event will include a DJ, light refreshments, gifts for the girls, and a photographer will be set up for optional pictures. 

The cost per couple for City of Acworth residents is $30.00 and $40.00 for non-City residents.  Additional daughters cost $10.00 each.  Make sure to pre-register for this event!  Day-of Registration will only be held if space is available and increased rates will apply.
