This mission of the National Ball & Father-Daughter Dance is to celebrate innovation and praise solutions to a remedy culture of "Moral Failures".
"The best way to shape the future is to influence it." - Harry Mills
Although an involved, responsible father cannot guarantee his child's success in the world, there is ample reason to wonder about the future of a child who grows up without such a man in his or her life. Clearly, an engaged, responsible, loving father can do a lot to give a child a boost, while an absent or uncaring one can do even more to cripple that child. The only thing surprising is that this comes as a surprise to so many people.
We are calling on you to join us in sponsoring this inaugural event that will bring together Fathers and Daughters of all ages and backgrounds to celebrate their loving relationship. The theme of the celebration is 'Values, A Lifetime of Love' and is intended to showcase the important role fathers and father figures play in the lives of their daughters.
