Fathers and daughters danced the night away for a good cause

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

More than a hundred fathers and daughters came together Saturday night for a night of dancing and fun.

The third annual father daughter dance allows dads and their little ladies to time with one another to foster a better relationship.

It's the Wisdom Foundation's largest fundraiser of the year.

The Jackson Convention Complex was pretty in pink as daughters made crafts and had their picture taken with dad.

Proceeds benefit the Wisdom Foundation's after school programs that enhances learning.

"This is an event that brings attention to our program, which is out of school time programs. We need more quality in out of school time programs in the city, at the daycares, at the centers and make sure the kids are getting quality programs and enrichment, said Elizabeth Keller, Executive Director for Wisdom Foundation.

An unrelated dad-daughter dance was held in Brandon Saturday evening, where 1,200 were expected to attend.
