Frequently Asked Questions

*What is an unplugged event? 

For one very special night, for 3+ hours, we are creating a magic bubble with no outside distractions for your daughter and the important man in her life to create a memory that will last forever. Have fun and take all the pictures you want at home before and after the dance. But please leave your phones, iPads etc. at home and describe the fun you had at the dance to Mom and Grandma.

What happens during the break time? 

Since your young lady can dance non-stop, we have you covered. The ice cream buffet runs all night. Take a breather and have your picture taken. Halfway through the dance sit down and watch the surprise entertainment. Hint Guys: Just twirl her, watch and smile.

How do we use the professional digital photograph? 

The professional photographer releases your photo so you may duplicate, enlarge or even use as a screen saver. Get a FREE digital photo at the dance with purchase of your ticket.

What should we wear? 

Anything you want and will have fun dancing in. For girls: fantasy, party, cowgirl outfits, etc. Guys may want to wear short sleeves for dancing and then wear a coat and tie for the photo.

What is a forever corsage?

They are beautiful silk flowers that tie at the wrist. The gentleman selects a corsage and ties it on his young lady’s wrist thereby becoming the first man to ever give her a corsage.

What are Guardians ad Litem?

Guardians are unpaid volunteers who advocate in court for the best interest of children who have been removed from their homes by the state. Guardians visit the child’s new living arrangements, check in at their school and really listens to the child. They often know what a child may need that the state does not provide.

Why can't I donate directly to the Guardian ad Litem program? 

The Guardian ad Litem (GAL) Program is state mandated, so they are prohibited from accepting donations and gifts. Thus, Voices for Children (also run by unpaid volunteers) raises money to provide for basic items like clothing but also replacement glasses or a normalcy item like a baseball bat.
