Torrey Hills Elementary School will hold its fourth annual Father-Daughter Dance on Sunday, March 16. As a way to help kick off the excitement for the dance, the Dads’ Club hosts a contest for one of its young student artists to design the artwork for the event’s posters and t-shirt. Fifth-grader Piper Kenney created this year’s winning design, selected out of 20 worthy submissions.
Last year the event attracted 168 attendees, the dance’s largest crowd.
“It’s building up steam; it gets bigger and bigger each year,” said event chair Paul Matsumoto.
The dance will again be held at the Del Mar Marriott, from 4-8 p.m., starting the evening with a “cocktail” hour around the pool. Dinner will follow as well as a raffle with fun prizes, a hula hoop contest, a slide show with photos of the girls, and then dancing with dad to music provided by the popular Rob the DJ.
