Look for an upcoming story about the Mothers Culture Club's last fund-raiser of the year. It's gonna be a sweetheart of a deal. Not only is the upcoming event taking place around St. Valentine's Day, there should be lots of love in the air. Why? Because, dear friends, it's the Mothers Culture Club's first Daddy-Daughter Dance ... scheduled for 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 7, at the First United Methodist Church Family Life Center. (Seems like there are an awful lot of charitable events held there; if we didn't have First United Methodist already, we'd have to invent it.)
Tickets are a measly $20, and that gets you a deejay (Good Vibrations DJ and Karaoke, who're donating their services), a 5X7 photo of Father and Daughter (again, donated, this time by Brandy Fisher) and balloons, with helium courtesy of ETOX. Punch and cookies provided, as is a crafts center if the kid gets board doing the paso doble with Poppa.
Want tickets? They're $20 from an MCC member, or call Gena at 903-438-2151 or Jesley at 903-885-7325.
The money, by the way, goes to children who need it. Mothers Culture Club starts raising money at the start of their "fiscal year" in August, then give it all away at the end to places like CASA (if you don't know who they are, just give them all the money you can and we'll fill you in later), Boys and Girls Club, Empty Stocking (see "CASA" if ou aren't familiar), etc. On the quiet, they also help families that are struggling with a very sick child (think cancer, leukemia, etc.).
Organizers expect mostly elementary age daughters, but any age is welcome. One woman who's grown and has kids of her own bought a ticket so she and her dad can go to the Father Daughter Dance like they used to when she was growing up.
Also, feel free to just give them $20 and let MCC members give the ticket to someone who can't afford it but wants to bond with their little girl. They'll find someone to take it.
Now, go shine those boogie shoes and practice your cha-cha-cha.
