The Tomah Haiti Mission Team is planning a father/daughter dance for Saturday, March 3.

The dance will be from 6-9 p.m. at the Tomah Middle School gymnasium. Admission is $10 per father (or father-type figure − a big brother, an uncle, a grandpa, etc.). The “dad” can bring all of his girls for one $10 ticket.

Dance music will once again be provided by Midnight Entertainment. A photo booth and photographer will be present to take photos for an additional fee.

Attire is semi-formal; everyone is encouraged to dress so they feel festive and comfortable. The dance is geared for daughters ages two through 18.

Organizers say the goal is for each “dad” to have an affordable and fun evening with his girls and to make sweet memories.

Tickets will be available at the door on March 3. For planning purposes, attendees are encouraged to register their intent on attending by joining the father/daughter dance event at the Tomah Haiti Mission Team’s Facebook page.

The Tomah Haiti Mission Team has served in Haiti since 2006 in varying capacities. The team has provided medical and dental assistance over the years, and since 2011 has helped over 200 couples get married in their church and become full, respected members of their respective congregations. The team has also helped with various projects at Camp Mahanaim, a sports camp for Haitian youth. The camp opened in the summer of 2013, offering Haitian youth many new experiences in sports and Christian faith.

The team has also supported Rod and Debbie Wray, the missionaries with whom they work, by donating funds to be used for individual Haitians’ medical needs throughout the year. The local community knows the Wrays will help them and individuals come to them when ill or injured. Tomah’s funds are used for treatment, surgeries and medicines to help keep the community healthy.
