Crisp County Celebrates Bond Between Dads and DaughtersPrint This Post
What a night! Little girls from all over Crisp County danced the night away on cold February Friday night. They joined a special man in their life for a date night they will remember for some time to come. Crisp County’s Father Daughter Dance is an annual event held the first Friday of each February. While the purpose of the event is to celebrate the bond a little girl has with her father or a father figure, it also serves as a fundraiser for the Crisp County Community Council, the local Family Connection Collaborative.
Georgia Family Connection is the only statewide network of its kind in the country—with partners in all 159 counties dedicated to the health and well-being of families and communities.What we do is vital, because everything we do is aimed at improving conditions and prospects of families in every community throughout the state. We are—and always have been—working toward measurably better outcomes for everyone:
- Healthy children who are primed for school, and who succeed when they get there.
- Families who are stable, self-sufficient, and productive.
- Communities that are vibrant, robust, and thriving.
Georgia Family Connection was established to connect and convene key community members committed to improving the well-being of children and families. Anyone that has an interest in the well being of children and families can collaboratively find solutions, identify best practices and share resources. Local collaboratives like Crisp Family Connection address the local issues of children and families using sound data that has been provided with the help of the Annie Casey Foundation at the Georgia KIDS COUNT Data Center.
The Crisp Community Council thanks its partners, Crisp Regional Hospital, Crisp Chamber of Commerce, Judy’s Small World, and the First United Methodist Church, as well as the Crisp County High School’s CTI students that make up the majority of the volunteers. The Council would also like to thank all of the families that participated in this year’s event. Whether the special someone that fixed the hair, fluffed the dress, painted the fingernails, or the handsome date that left work a little early, arranged the details for the evening and carefully wiped the red punch mustache from a smiling face . . . or even the beautiful young lady that sang Frozen’s “Let it Go, Let it Go!!” with her best singing voice and great theatrical commitment, all played a part in making the night special.
