On January 28th, 2017, DeForest DECA hosted their annual Dad ‘n Daughter Dance. DECA hosts this event each year for girls age four through fourth grade and an adult male “date.”
In addition to dancing, other activities include face painting, a photo booth, and plenty of snacks. This year’s theme, ‘Red Carpet Gala,’ brought in 540 girls, meaning that over 1,000 people attended the event!
Brenna Bernards (high school senior) and Emily Chermak (high school junior) took the lead on organizing the event. “This is always such a fun event to be a part of, and it was an honor to lead it. I loved seeing all the girls dressed up and enjoying the perfect night we put together!” Brenna said.
According to Bernards and Chermak, the girls who attended the dance gave positive feedback about the event. “My favorite part of the Daddy Daughter dance was trying to find my friends to dance with- besides spending time with my dad!” said McKenzie Brandl, a student at Windsor Elementary School.
“The DECA Officer team hosts the event each year in the hope that girls and their fathers will create valuable memories of a very special night,” said Emily.
