Bay Shore Church on the Toledo
More than 85 couples are expected to attend the 14th-annual Long Beach Father/Daughter Dance hosted by Justin Rudd and his nonprofit 501c3 Community Action Team (C.A.T.). The dance will take place from 4:30 - 6:30 p.m. at the expansive, carpeted community hall of Bay Shore Church on The Toledo in Belmont Shore.
It will be a special, area-wide, semi-formal evening for fathers and daughters of all ages. The evening will be complete with decorations, old-fashioned refreshments, wholesome music, girls in dresses, dads in ties, fathers giving corsages, and daughters learning how a gentleman treats a lady -- all to benefit great environmental, youth and animal welfare programs in our area.
For this special night, moms are not allowed to visit or spectate. It's a night for moms to have a night off. There is no age requirement, so young and old are able to enjoy the evening. Girls may also be accompanied by their uncle, guardian or an adult relative.
