This past Fall, the MFRC decided to re-name the Father Daughter Sweetheart Dance as the Lil’ Sweetheart Dance. Over the years, we’ve had people attend the dance that weren’t fathers. We’ve had a mother, a big brother, grandparents, family friends and father figures all step into the role. One of our core values as an organization is inclusiveness and we wanted a name to reflect that.
We know our community loves this event. It has grown and grown in popularity. Despite the success over the years, there was considerable debate if we should continue doing it. Our compromise is to tweak our language and to keep doing the event.
It is the same great event people have come to know over the years. We totally expect the event to be full of fathers and daughters from years gone by. The name change represents a small change and we hope everyone feels comfortable attending it with their family.
Other event details:
- This year we are excited to have Four Frames Photo Booth participate in this year’s event.
- Fernando’s Music Service will once again be providing the music.
- LA Limo is providing the early bird prize of a free limousine ride to and from the event.
Tickets will be available starting Monday January 8th at the Lil’ Sweetheart Dance event page.
