Justin Rudd Hosts Annual Long Beach Father/Daughter Dance Sunday
2012-02-07 · By Editor
More Than 50 couples are expected to attend the 8th annual Long Beach Father/Daughter Dance hosted by Justin Rudd and his nonprofit 501c3 Community Action Team (C.A.T.).
The dance will take place Sunday, Febuary 12, 2012, from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. at the expansive, carpeted community hall of Bay Shore Church on The Toledo (@ Nieto Ave.) in Belmont Shore. Rudd says more than $1,500 is expected to be raised from ticket sales for C.A.T.
It will be a special, area-wide, semi-formal evening for fathers and daughters of all ages. The evening was complete with decorations, old-fashioned refreshments, wholesome music, girls in dresses, dads in ties, fathers giving corsages, and daughters learning how a gentleman treats a lady — all to benefit great environmental, youth and animal welfare programs in our area.
Couples will enjoy home-baked goodies from moms, and other delights provided by C.A.T. Couples will also enjoy complimentary prom-styled photos by Lei Wang and Justin Rudd that will be available online from a link on this Web page after the event.
Prizes will be awarded to winners of various dance contests throughout the night for dads and daughters. Awards are sponsored by Happy Tails to You.
Fathers and Grandfathers have an opportunity to take their daughters or granddaughters out for dancing to party classics. There is no age requirement, so young and old are able to enjoy the evening. Girls may also be accompanied by their uncle, guardian or an adult relative.
Moms are invited to spectate in the back of the room at the dance for the last 5 minutes ONLY (6:25 p.m.).
Participants will enjoy party classics provided by DJ Dawn, and Happy Tails to You is the dance contest sponsor. Music will include dance hits like “Livin La Vida Loca”, “Hokey Pokey”, and “Conga”, as well as tunes by Mylie Cyrus and other pre-teen and teen musical sensations.
Low-income rate starts at $10/couple paid in advance. Register at: http://justinrudd.com/dance.html
