On Saturday, June 11th at 6:30pm, little girls got all dressed up as they excitedly await a date with dad. Nutrition in Demand, hosted its 3rd annual fundraising event, Dance with Cinderella at the Brayton Hall on Venetian Road. This event was planned to honor fathers and to give them and their daughters quality one on one time without any pressure or judgement from anyone. It’s a time when fathers can just relax and have fun! They were treated to a scrumptious full course meal as they listened to to the melodious sounds of Sax O’ Pan Serenades. There was a dessert table that the daughters were especially fond of. Once dinner was done, the real fun got started as fathers and daughters participated in various activities such as a twist competition, a hula hoop competition and a dance off between fathers. There was lots of dancing, lots of laughs and lots of memories made. It was great fun and from all accounts, everyone had a grand time! According to organizer and Registered Dietitian, Mrs. Tamika Handfield, “Dance with Cinderella started as an idea of wanting to give back to fathers as well as finding an innovative idea to raise funds for the nonprofit. I am ecstatic to see what that idea has grown into! It’s an event that fathers and daughters look forward to attending. This is our third year and we have had fathers and daughters that have attended every year!! That speaks volumes!!”
Mr. Alvin Parker and his daughter, Ava-Camille, attended for the first time and said this, “This was our first year attending the Father and Daughter Cinderella Dance and I’m so happy we decided to attend. Seeing the excitement in my daughter’s eyes when we pulled up to the hall and how she walked in holding my hand like, “look at me and my daddy”- just reconfirmed the importance of my role as her father. I feel so blessed to have been reminded of that. Hats off to the organizers of the event and to all the fathers in attendance.” An event of this magnitude is only possible with the help of corporate TCI.
