    cghsmom: the Forever Fancy Daddy-Daughter Dance encourages the attendance of young ladies with other male relatives or male father figures if Dad is not present or accessible (ex: military, illness, death, distance, etc)
    Admission is only $25 for the couple, with lots of freebies so it is priced very affordably. Please share with friends that you may have in the Cumberland County Area since all of the other dances are in the Triangle:)Spread the news on Facebook by searching the event- Forever Fancy Daddy Daughter Dance or visit our website and share the link with friends in this area!

    And they are doing something special to include girls who fathers are not present in their life. If you read the other ones, many of them are $30 or more anyway.. if you read them they say $15 per person.

    It's $40 for a pair of tix! And it is a museum that operates on donations, memberships and admissions prices.
