The 10th annual Carmel Del Mar School Father-Daughter dance was held at the Del Mar Marriott on March 10. The dance welcomed a record 260 people this year, up from 208 in 2012 and up from 160 when organizer Darryl Gordon, a faithful member of the CDM Dad’s Club, took over the planning in 2009.
“It was like planning a wedding,” Gordon said of their biggest event ever.
The successful 10-year-old dance also received a special proclamation on Sunday from San Diego Mayor Bob Filner, celebrating March 10, 2013 as Father-Daughter Dance Day in the city of San Diego. The dance’s founder John Patterson presented the proclamation to Gordon.
