Daddy Daughter Dance set for Friday

DUNCAN — There are only a few days left to purchase tickets for the 3rd annual Daddy Daughter Dance.

Tickets are limited to only 100 couples and 25 additional daughters to avoid overcrowding for the event, which is sponsored by the Simmons Center. The dance is from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Friday at the Simmons Center.

“We’ve sold 75 couples and 16 additional daughters,” said Stephanie Sullivan, event coordinator, on Tuesday morning.

No tickets will be sold at the door. In order to get them call 580-252-2900 ext. 240 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. today through Friday. This is a popular event, so it’s best to call soon.

“We are excited to have made it to a third year,” Sullivan said. “There are a lot of people who tell us this is their favorite thing each year and it gets better every time.”

This is an opportunity for fathers and daughters to get dressed up and go out for a nice evening. Many dads treat it as a full-out date night by taking their little girl(s) out to dinner before the dance.

However, if dinner isn’t in the plans, hors d’oeuvres will be catered by Duncan Regional Hospital during the event. Door prizes will be given out through the night as daddies and daughters dance the evening way to the sounds of DJ Eddie Culberson with Charming Entertainment.

“Santa will be here again, this time with a photo booth instead of a photographer,” said Sullivan.

This event is a rare chance for a special night for daddies’ little girls that allows fathers to show their daughters how they should be treated with respect when out on future dates.

  • Governor, state Legislature have misplaced priorities

    If the Oklahoma State Legislators and our Governor spent less time interfering in women’s rights to manage their bodies, creating ways to lay more taxes and fees on the middle class in order to generate more tax breaks which benefit only the wealthy while also conceiving methods with which to fill Oklahoma’s for-profit prisons, they would be doing all of us a favor. Instead, why not work to enhance funding for our schools and wage increases for all school employees? While reforming the state’s educational budget, why don’t they approve wage increases for our Oklahoma State Troopers and enlarge their Academy to insure qualified individuals are ready to fill the upcoming vacancies as many of the older force retire?

  • Self government key to keeping politicians in check

    Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that federal campaign laws that limit the total amount of money donors can give to political parties, committees and candidates for federal office (U.S. House, Senate, and President) was unconstitutional. The ruling will not increase the current $2,600 limit on how much a donor can give to a federal candidate in each primary and general election or the $32,400 limit that can go to a national party committee. Those limits are still in place.  The ruling will instead remove the limit on how many candidates/committees to which a donor can contribute.
