Fathers & Community,
I was there tonight taking tickets and I have never seen so many beautiful young ladies with their proud DADs and or escorts. They had smiles on their face that stretched from ear to ear! Desserts that people were bringing in were incredible!!! Happy faces were everywhere. I saw little ones from Ms. Catherine’s and Ms Jodies class all the way up to the middle school. In fact I saw more middle schoolers’ there then I have ever before. Not only did we have many kids from the Charter school we may have had several families from outside the community. I know for a fact that we even had a Father with his incredibly beautiful daughter who happens to be the grand daughter of our ex Board president.
This was by far the most successful Dance that the “Father Club” has put on. As of Friday morning I had taken home 25 tickets sales! That was pretty good. But you know what?? We had 23 walk ups at the door between 6:00-7:00 pm tonight. That is incredible!! That means that the take was about $1,350.00 dollars. Not bad for something that was never meant to be a fundraiser!!!
Thanks to all the Fathers Club Members!!!!!!!! We cleaned and set up decorations on Friday night and then were back at it on Saturday morning and afternoon finishing in time to go home and get ready to take the dates out to dinner before the big dance.
Thanks to John & Judy Patrick for making & donating 90 beautiful corsages.
Thanks to Kelli Ruderman for asking her mom to do flowers again.
Thanks to Philster for taking pictures and Mary Mills for helping him.
Thanks to Susan Harman for always pitching in to help.
Thanks to Darcie Garthwaite for creating masterpieces of hair on our daughters.
Thanks to the Yolanda, Comstock Lunch lady & SREC Parent who shared her space with us.
Thanks to anyone that I missed…..
Fathers & Community members please take the time to reach out to anyone that you know who showed up and thank them for coming. Without the support of the community we would not be able to put on this fabulous event . The 5th year is in the books!! Now the Fathers club is getting ready to support the Parents club with our next big event. Our biggest annual fundraiser of the year.
