Father Daughter Dance Plays Important Role in Teaching Young Girls About Love and Respect

NORTH LAKE TAHOE AND TRUCKEE – January 30, 2012- Tahoe SAFE Alliance and Tahoe City Public Utility Department are collaborating to put on the 3rd Annual Father Daughter Dance on February 10, 2012 from 6-9:00 pm at the Tahoe Biltmore.  Over the last two years this event has amassed a loyal following: last year more than 250 father daughter couples danced the night away.  The Father Daughter Dance is a fun-filled evening for girls of all ages and the special men in their lives.  Tickets are $20 for a father/daughter couple and $5 for each additional child.  For event tickets and information go to www.tahoesafealliance.org/father-daughter-dance

Statistics show that a young girl will seek her father’s love first at home.  If she doesn’t find it, she will seek it elsewhere. The Father Daughter Dance focuses on the importance of fathers and their daughters having strong, healthy relationships.   The first strong male bond girls have is with their father’s and this event teaches young girls what it means to be treated with love and respect.  The goal is that father’s will continue to be positive role models and that these girls will have healthy relationships as teens and adults as a result.

For the first time, Tahoe SAFE Alliance is collaborating with Tahoe City Public Utility Department and expects a strong showing from the West Shore.  Together, both agencies hope to make this the must attend event for all of North Lake Tahoe and Truckee.  The Father Daughter Dance is sponsored by Tahoe Forest Hospital.

Given the event’s close timing to Valentine’s Day, the ballroom at Tahoe Biltmore will be transformed into a red and pink wonderland thanks to decorations donated by Dress the Part(y).  Guests will dance to the music styling’s of DJ Retro, enjoy cake and arts and craft stations including a new & improved princess castle donated by Rob Laurie and Fortress Construction.  There will be snacks available for purchase as well as a Photobooth from Reno Photobooth Company and portrait pictures from Danielle Hankinson Photography.
