SULLIVAN -- The Little Theatre On The Square is scheduled to hold hold its Daddy Daughter Dance fundraiser Saturday evening.
Organizers reported that this fourth annual event is expected to be bigger than last year's dance, which drew more than 250 participants to the venue at Sullivan Elementary School.
“We added several new things last year that were popular, including a raffle,” theater board member and dance organizer Amanda Standerfer said in a press release. “We love having the dance at (the school) because we can create spaces for the different activities and make the entire night very special.”
This year’s theme is “Magic Under the Sea,” evoking images of mermaids and underwater castles. The dance is set for 6-8 p.m. Saturday at Sullivan Elementary School.
The dance will once again feature cupcakes from Sullivan Bakery, a make-and take craft, photo opportunities, and dancing. In addition, Standerfer said the raffle will again feature a new American Girl doll, plus other goodies.
“Every year is so much fun and the event continues to grow,” said John Stephens, The Little Theatre’s executive producer.

“It’s such a fun evening for the girls. We encourage all dads and father figures to bring the special girl in their life,” Standerfer said. The dance is open to girls of all ages, but Standerfer noted that most are between the ages of 18 months and seventh grade. More information is available via firstname.lastname@example.org.
