The Knox County Awareness Coalition (KCAC), formerly known as the Knox County Coalition Against Meth, held their fifth annual Daddy Daughter Dance in Edina at the Knox County Community Center on Friday night, April 4, 2014.
In all 55 daddies and their daughters, several having more than one, attended the event making for a running, jumping, dancing, screaming, shrieking, squealing good time.
Each of the little girls ranging in ages, the youngest being one week old Kinley Hayes, were done up for the dance in their prettiest, frilliest, sparkle-iest, boofiest dresses.
The girls spent the evening snacking on refreshments provided by KCAC, dancing with their daddies and running wild through the community center having a good ‘ole time making memories with their fathers.
This fundraiser is just one of several events put on by KCAC throughout the year. To find out more about KCAC, their events and how to join the organization, whose purpose is to bring drug awareness to the Knox County community, contact anyone on the group’s board of directors.
