The Daddy-Daughter Dance was a big success

We at the MOMS Club loved the pictures of the Daddy-Daughter Dance (“Shall we dance,” Feb 13). Thank you so much for covering the event.
It was delightful to see well over 100 dads show up with their daughters to the annual Port Orchard Daddy-Daughter Dance.
They were showing off their latest moves to their adoring daughters, doing the Hokey-Pokey, and dancing the Macarena without embarrassment.
But there was more to this event than just a dance. It is the biggest one-day community service project that the MOMS Club of Port Orchard will take on this year.
The event helped raise close to $1,200, which will be put right back into the community.
South Kitsap Helpline, Habitat for Humanity, the First Lutheran Soup Kitchen, the 285k Meals Project and a local woman’s association will all be the benefactors of this sold-out event.
This would not have been possible without the help of so many.
The biggest thank you goes to the Sedgwick Fred Meyer, which took on sole sponsorship of this event.
Their in-kind donation allowed us to freeze the price of admission for this year’s dance. They also stepped up to the table with a huge discount on photo development, donated coloring books and the helium for the balloons, not to mention the labor.
We couldn’t have asked for a better, more community-minded sponsor.
Thank you to Kitsap County for continuing to recognize the importance of this community event, which was originally run by its own Parks and Recreation Department, by providing us with the dance hall free of charge.
And finally, a huge thank you to our MOMS Club of Port Orchard members. Without your sense of community and volunteerism, this event would never have been possible.
I am proud to be a part of such a wonderful group of women.
