Girls Inc. Daddy Daughter Dance

Girls Inc. Daddy Daughter Dance

The recent Daddy Daughter Dance was a great experience for fathers
and daughters to share an evening of dinner, dancing and games. Provided
by Girls Inc. that helps to empower girls to be the best that they can
and embrace their unique talents and abilities.
Girls Incorporated of Jacksonville, “The positive impact of girls’ education
has been shown to transcend generations, resulting in better health
outcomes among women, their children, and eventually their grandchildren.”

This annual event provides dads a chance to spend quality time with their
daughters which is important to help maintain a bond that is sometimes
challenged by the pressures of day to day living and parental responsibilities.
Held this year at the World Golf Village in St. Augustine, Florida the dance was
lively and energetic as dads and daughters danced into the evening creating
life-long memories to cherish in the future. Included in the events of the Daddy
Daughter Dance was a silent auction and give-a-ways that provided additional
fun and excitement to the evening.

Each year my daughters look forward to this event that encourages all ages
to participate where dads, step-dads, granddads and even men that serve in
a dads role can share quality time with their daughters. The smiles on the faces
of the daughters is contagious, the spirit of fatherhood could be seen as fathers
greeted each other with brotherly handshakes as they sat at the dining tables
they shared. Sharing stories and watching their daughters dance and establish
new friendships that will grow to life-long friendships.

The Daddy Daughter Dance also helps fathers in sharing experiences of
fatherhood and the responsibilities of being the best father they can be for
their children and families. Each year the Daddy Daughter Dance has grown
in attendance to help support girls not just in Jacksonville but nationally.
