Family dance part of United Fund plan

bporterfield@pvdemocrat.com — The togetherness of a true family event is part of a plan to increase the number of events for a Pauls Valley group that raises money to help a multitude of area groups.

Next up for the ongoing Pauls Valley United Fund campaign is a father-daughter dance coming in a couple of weeks.

The dance is scheduled from 6 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 22 at the Reynolds Recreation Center in Wacker Park.

This event is next in line for what United Fund board members hope will be even more activities in the future, all designed to raise money for the community based effort.

“We want to gain periodic fundraisers and have these events on a regular basis,” said board Chairman Angela Portwood.

“We want to keep awareness on United Fund throughout the year.”

The last two United Fund fundraisers, a gun raffle and spaghetti dinner, had fairly solid results, Portwood said.

Hopes are for even more with this brand new event designed to provide the community with an elegant and fun night of dancing and family togetherness, while at the same benefiting the United Fund effort to raise money.

During a board meeting this week members reported the upcoming “daddy-daughter” dance is getting plenty of help.

Pitching in are such groups as the Maysville Daughter’s Club, the Cub Scouts, Delta Community Action and the Garvin County Job Fair.

Efforts to get the word out about the dance could include passing out flyers during youth basketball games at the local recreation center and placing posters throughout town, especially at dance studios.

The plan right now is for finger foods and refreshments to get the event started at 6 p.m. Feb. 22 in a multi-purpose room at the rec center.

The “dancing with dad” segment, complete with a DJ supplying the music, is scheduled to go from 6:30 to 8 p.m. that night. A photographer is expected to be on site to take pictures.

Advance tickets are $25 per couple, while the cost is $10 for each additional child. After Feb. 16 the cost goes to $35 for each father-daughter pair.

For information on tickets or the event itself, contact Portwood at 580-272-5085 or Connie Frazier at 405-238-2988.

Various other events are being considered for the spring months, including a pancake breakfast and youth baseball tournament.

The goal for United Fund board members is to raise at least $40,000 for the 2014 year.

The money that is raised is disbursed out quarterly to a number of community organizations that help residents all over Garvin County in a variety of ways.
