Ties & Tiaras Dance Raises Funds for PTSA
Father-daughter dances were quite the rage this past week in New Braunfels, but the best is yet to come … at Canyon Lake High School this Saturday.
Members of Canyon Lake High School’s (CLHS) Dance Team will dress up as Disney royalty and whirl little princesses around the school’s rotunda at the Fifth Annual Ties & Tiaras Daddy Daughter Dance, from 7 to 9 p.m. Saturday at Canyon Lake High School, 8555 FM 32, Fischer.
The dance is sponsored by CLHS’ Parent Teacher Association (PTSA). This year’s theme is Winter Wonderland, and the decor is silver-white and snowflakes. Members of the high school’s Reserve Officers Training Corp (ROTC) Saber Guard also will make an appearance.
Tickets are $35 per couple at the door, or can be purchased online by clicking here. T-shirts for girls also are for sale. PTSA cautions the line at the door can be long, and urges residents to buy online, if possible.
Uncles, older brothers, grandpas and men of New Braunfels also are welcome to bring their princesses, too. The dance is for royals ages toddler to sixth-grade.
No worries for Dads who don’t dance — Disney princesses on the dance team will make sure the tiaras dance the night away. Music is kid-friendly.
Finger foods and candy bars will be served.
There is no dress code for men, although most little girls prefer costumes, organizers say.
The annual dance is the PTSA’s biggest fundraiser. Last year, organizers raised $3,000 and 300 fathers and daughters attended. This year, funds raised will help teachers cover classroom expenses and support some scholarships for seniors.
“We decided we’re going to keep a few of those, and still honor that,” said the PTSA’s Macy Cason, who co-chairs the dance with Laci Harrison. “But what we thought would benefit the most people is using these funds to help teachers in their classrooms…we would like for this fundraiser to benefit all the kids at the high school, since that’s what we are.”
The PTSA will ask school administrators to send out a teacher wish-list.
Cason’s daughter, freshman Anna-Claire, is on the varsity cheer squad. Harrison’s daughter, freshman Hannah, plays volleyball. Both also participate in FFA.
Cason and Harrison are taking over from senior moms Nicole White and Lady Wood, whose daughters graduate this year.
