Valentine gala for girls and their dads creates memories

Now an institution in Rockford, the annual Daddy Daughter Dance for preschool through eighth-grade girls and their dads is this Friday, Feb. 4 at two locations. Brought to the community by photographer Dan Davison of Douglas Photography, the evening of music, refreshments and priceless memories is sponsored by Rockford Community Services and is held at the Rockford High School and East Rockford Middle School cafeterias. It is a celebration of Valentine’s Day to create memories of the special bond between dads and their little girls.

The cost of the dance is $10 per person. Touted as a semiformal gala, girls are invited to dress up for this event, which runs from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. There will be music, a DJ and refreshments, along with a photographer available at 6 p.m. for an additional cost. The dance outgrew its original location and is now held at two of the district’s schools to accommodate all. To find out more, log on to
