Fathers and daughters from across Del Rio donned their best attire to attend the fourth annual Father Daughter Dance hosted by BCFS Health and Human Services-Del Rio on December 12. The event celebrated the special bond between a father and his daughter and gave families an opportunity for a memorable night of fun, music and community engagement.
“We had a wonderful turnout,” said BCFS Director Delia Ramos. “Fathers and daughters spent quality time by dancing away in the Del Rio Civic Center. Door prizes for both fathers and daughters were an added treat.”
To mark this special event, the first song of the evening was “Dance with My Daughter” by Jason Blaine. There were 143 attendees including 78 girls and 65 fathers.
Sponsors who partnered with BCFS-Del Rio on the dance included The Bank & Trust, Brown Automotive, Border Federal Credit Union, Del Rio Towing Company, San Felipe Lions, Las Brisas Apartments and individual community members. Proceeds from ticket sales at the dance will benefit BCFS-Del Rio’s domestic violence program.
BCFS-Del Rio provides domestic violence prevention and treatment, and crisis intervention and counseling for families. BCFS-Del Rio operates the Services to At Risk Youth (STAR) program to help families reduce conflict and prevent delinquent behavior like running away or truancy. STAR works with youth and their families to learn to resolve crises and develop coping and parenting skills.
