Local DJ Ronnie Kaye is booked to once again emcee the event. Audiences can listen to Ronnie on 92.5 KOMA radio daily.

One of Yukon’s most popular events, the Daddy Daughter Dance is coming up on Saturday, Jan. 25 at the Dale Robertson Center, Route 66 and Yukon Parkway.

“A special Valentine theme of red hearts, highlighting the special bond between dads and daughters, will be on each table surrounding the dance floor,” Yukon Parks & Recreation Director Jan Scott said.

Childhood Learning Academy is the presenting sponsor for this year’s Daddy Daughter Dance. McDonald’s of Yukon will again help sponsor the dance, providing their delicious cookies for the girls and their dates.

“We’re thrilled to have Childhood Learning Academy and McDonald’s as ‘Friends of the Parks’ again for this annual event,” Scott said.

There are three separate dances. Girls ages 4-8 dance from 3-4:30 p.m. or 5-6:30 p.m. Girls ages 9-12 dance from 7-8:30 p.m.

Tickets are $10 per person in advance and $12.50 the day of and at the door. Tickets are available at the Yukon Community Center and Jackie Cooper Gym.
