Brownsburg Father-Daughter Dance sells out for two nights
By Lindsay Doty
There’s something about getting the girls in their fancy shoes and hitting the dance floor with dad that has families snagging up tickets to the annual Father-Daughter Dance.
In Brownsburg, there was such a demand for the February Father-Daughter Dance, organizers with the parks and recreation department added a second date.
“This year we expanded to two nights, which has allowed us to serve a total of 1,000 families. In previous years, we served up to 750 families. We are thrilled to be able to include more families in this special event,” said Brownsburg Community Engagement Manager Mary Louise Bewley.
Tickets for the Brownsburg Father-Daughter Dance for February 8 and 15th quickly sold out.
“I think this event is so popular because it’s a night where dads and their daughters make lifelong memories. From dressing up in fancy clothes to dancing and eating tasty treats together, this night brings fathers and daughters closer together,” said Bewley.
Organizers say the dance is also a great way to promote local businesses, from florists selling corsages to restaurants serving up specials for a night out.
“The Father-Daughter Dance helps Brownsburg Parks to make a real economic impact on our town.”
Other organizations throughout the county are hosting other daddy-daughter dances this time of year.
Project A.N.G.E.L., a nonprofit that helps families in Hendricks County, is hosting its 10th annual Father-Daughter Dance Princess Ball on February 22 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Washington Township Park Pavilion in Avon.
Tickets are still available to that event.
