Hosted by the Tomah Haiti Mission Team.
The dance will be at the Tomah Middle School Gym. Admission is $10 per dad (or father-type figure: a big brother, an uncle, a grandpa, etc.). The “dad” can bring all of his girls for that one $10 ticket.
Dance music will once again be provided by KC Entertainment DJ’s. The evening is guaranteed to be filled with fun (and appropriate!) tunes and activities.
Flowers will be available for purchase at the dance by The Station of Tomah.
Our special guest this year is Miss LaCrosse/Oktoberfest, Elle Mark. Elle is a senior at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse studying Public Health and Community Health Education. She is currently interning with Gundersen Health System in La Crosse in the Community and Preventive Care Services department. As Miss La Crosse/Oktoberfest 2018, Elle has spent countless hours volunteering in the community and promoting her platform, "Warrior, Not Worrier: Conquering Mental Illness". Her favorite part of serving in this role is getting to connect with people of all ages who love this region as much as she does. Elle enjoys dancing (and teaching others to dance) as well as spending time with her family and dog when she isn't busy working or making appearances as Miss La Crosse/Oktoberfest. She is thrilled to be attending this event and can't wait to dance the night away with all of the girls at the event.
A photo booth and photographer will be there to take that special picture to capture memories which will long be remembered. Photos are optional and will require an additional fee.
Attire is semi-formal; everyone is encouraged to dress so they feel festive and comfortable. The dance is geared for daughters ages 2 through 18.
The goal is for each “dad” to have an affordable and fun evening with his girls and to make sweet memories.
Tickets will be available at the door on March 2. For planning purposes, attendees are encouraged to “register” their intent on attending by joining the Father/Daughter Dance event at the Tomah Haiti Mission Team’s Facebook page.
The Tomah Haiti Mission Team has served in Haiti since 2006 in varying capacities. The team has provided medical and dental assistance over the years, and since 2011, has helped over 200 couples get married in their church and become full, respected members of their respective congregations. The team has also helped with various projects at Camp Mahanaim, a sports camp for Haitian youth. The camp opened in the summer of 2013, offering Haitian youth many new experiences in sports and Christian faith.
The team has also supported Rod and Debbie Wray, the missionaries with whom they work, by donating funds to be used for individual Haitian’s medical needs throughout the year. The local Haitian community knows the Wrays will help them and individuals come to them when ill or injured. Tomah’s funds are used for treatment, surgeries and medicines to help keep the community healthy.
