The cost of a ticket will be $15/couple and $5 for each additional daughter. All checks will be made payable to Bladen County 4-H, as any proceeds from the event will help support our county’s 4-H youth development program in the coming year.

On June 16, the Auditorium at the Bladen County Extension office will be transformed into a dance floor, photo booth, crafting space, and decorated with sweethearts everywhere! The space is limited for this special occasion, so be sure to get your tickets early. You can stop by the offices of Bladen County 4-H to pick up the registration form and pay for your tickets or you can download the form here and bring by the office with payment. Bladen County 4-H is a program of Bladen County Cooperative Extension Services and is located at 450 Smith Circle Drive in Elizabethtown in the Powell Melvin Agricultural Building.

The Father- Daughter dance provides an opportunity for fathers to spend unique bonding time with the special girl or girls in their life and to have fun making crafts, dancing, taking silly pictures and creating memories that will last a lifetime. This is an important family-centered activity and opportunity that is offered through youth programming in Bladen County. The National Responsible Fatherhood Clearinghouse (NRFC) recognizes the importance of father involvement and that all fathers can be important contributors to the well-being of their children. Not only did their findings suggest that the presence of a responsible father has a direct effect on behavioral and emotional outcomes for the child, but the research supports the conclusion that children with involved, loving fathers are significantly more likely to do well in school, have healthy self-esteem, exhibit empathy and pro-social behavior, and avoid high-risk behaviors including drug use, truancy, and criminal activity.

If you are a Dad, Granddad, or even a special Uncle, please consider investing in a memory for your little girl(s) this year and get your tickets to this Sweetheart Dance before they are sold out.
