Approximately 500 dads and daughters of all ages bonded during an evening of dancing, games and prizes at Stuart C. Gildred Family YMCA’s Cinderella’s ball father-daughter dance.

The dance took place over the course of two nights inside the Stuart C. Gildred Family YMCA Gymnasium and Community Center.

“This is one of the most popular events we have all year,” said Adria Griggs, community program director at the Stuart C. Gildred Family YMCA. “I cant thank our team of volunteers and community sponsors enough for helping with this event that gives these girls a lifelong memory with their dad.”

Guests were entertained by music from a DJ and had the opportunity to take a professional photo by Christine Photography in front of a castle photo booth donated by SJG Construction.

Attendees also enjoyed food donated by Albertsons, El Rancho, Enjoy Cupcakes, Fresco Valley Café, Olsens Bakery, Pattibakes and Solvang Bakery.

Prizes were donated from Del Sol, Rasmussen’s, Solvang Toy Store, Gerda’s Iron Art Gift Shop, Solvang Children’s Shop, Kid’s Club, G. Wilikers, Vinhus, The Right Gift, Mie’s Beads, Going Out!, Edelweiss, Hats Unlimited, The Sock Loft, Pickett Fences, Kaylin’s Gift Boutique, Design Alternatives, Spa Elan and The Clique.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
