ELIZABETHTOWN — Fathers, grandfathers … save the date for the upcoming 2018 Father-Daughter Sweetheart Dance to benefit Bladen County 4-H.

This special night will be Saturday, June 16 — Father’s Day Weekend — from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Bladen County Coooperative Extension Office at 450 Smith Circle Drive.

The Father Daughter dance will be a great time to celebrate Father’s Day with your special little girl.

On this special night, Bladen County dads (or grandfathers) will bring their sweetheart date(s) to enjoy a night of music, dancing, dinner, refreshments, face painting, a keepsake photo, crafts and much more. The cost of a ticket will be $15 per couple and $5 for each additional daughter. All checks will be made payable to Bladen County 4-H, as any proceeds from the event will help support our county’s 4-H youth development program in the coming year.

On June 16, the auditorium at the Bladen County Extension office will be transformed into a dance floor, photo booth, crafting space and decorated with sweet hearts everywhere. The space is limited for this special occasion, so be sure to get your tickets early. You can stop by the offices of Bladen County 4-H to pick up the registration form and pay for your tickets or you can download the form bring by the office with payment.

The Father-Daughter dance provides an opportunity for fathers to spend unique bonding time with the special girl or girls in their life and to have fun making crafts, dancing, taking silly pictures and creating memories that will last a lifetime. This is an important family centered activity and opportunity that is offered through youth programming in Bladen County.

If you are a dad, granddad, or even a special uncle, please consider investing in a memory for your little girl(s) this year and get your tickets to this Sweetheart Dance before they are sold out.
