Father-Daughter Dance returns for sixth year

The annual Father-Daughter Dance to raise funds to fight leukemia/lymphoma returns to the El Macero Country Club on Friday, March 15.

The event, from 6 to 10 p.m., features dinner, dessert and dancing, with a professional photographer available to take pictures of fathers and daughters.

The dance has always been held in memory of Judi Meinert, who died of leukemia in 1990 at the age of 43. She had three sons and always dreamed of having granddaughters, but didn’t live to see them, said her daughter-in-law, Laura Meinert.

“She would have loved to have seen all of these beautiful young ladies, of all different ages, dressing up and having a ball with their fathers,” Meinert said.

Every year, the dance raises between $500 and $700 in her memory for the Leukemia/Lymphoma Society.

Tickets for the event are $35 each and may be purchased at The Avid Reader, El Macero Country Club, or the offices of dentist James Meinert, 604 Third St.

“Our town of Davis is so great at embracing causes and helping others, and this dance has been a success for the past years due to the outpouring of community support,” Meinert said. “We greatly appreciate everyone’s participation in making this evening a tradition for (fathers and daughters) and a night to remember for many years to come.”
