Vashon Allied Arts is sponsoring its fourth annual Father/Daughter Dance, to be held at the Vashon Island Golf and Country Club on Saturday, June 4th. Last year’s event was a huge success, and most of the dad’s were left breathless by the end of the evening. Smiles and fun are guaranteed. Uncles, Grandfathers, and other stand-ins are also welcome. Proceeds from the event will benefit VAA’s Blue Heron Dance program.

The theme for this year is Mardi Gras, and participants will be transported to an era reminiscent of New Orleans. The dance will be semi-formal, with coats and ties for dads and dresses for the ladies. Desserts and drinks will be provided, along with a complementary photograph, a small gift for each daughter, and memories to last a lifetime. The dance will take place from 7 - 9:30 p.m., at VIGCC, and Vashon’s own Dan Brown will D.J. the event. The evening will kick off with some helpful group instruction. John Sage graciously returns from last year to provide the photography (check out to view last year’s event). This year, we are also offering a dinner option before the dance, starting at 5:30 p.m. Three choices of entree will be available to select from. Girls – grab 3 or 4 of your best friends and their dads, and make an evening of it.

Tickets - are $20 per person for the dance and $20 per person for the optional dinner; can be purchased at VAA, Books by the Way, and the Vashon Bookshop; are limited to 100 couples; and we expect to sell out fast. Dads and daughters alike will always remember this special evening. Daughters of all ages are welcome - regardless of age, we know you’ll outlast your dad! If questions, please call the VAA office or Jeff Sayre 463-2150.
