Other Important Details
The recommended age for daughters is 8 years old and into adulthood. Semi-formal/formal attire is suggested. Look at the pictures on Facebook to get familiar with the evening attire.
Platte Floral has designed wrist corsages (white Sweetheart roses) for the ladies ($16.50) & boutonnieres for the men ($6.50) and can be purchased when filling in the online registration. Flowers preordered will be available for pickup at the event. Please arrive 30 minutes early to obtain your flowers.
Capture the special moment with Apre Photographers! Payment is due at the time of service. Apre will accept checks, credit cards or cash. Online payment is not available for photography services.
Tables seat 10 to 12 people. We do our best to accommodate your friend requests, but we cannot guarantee seating arrangements. It is recommended that you register simultaneously with your friends/family to help ensure your seating request.
All seats are preassigned. There is a seating chart at the entry to the ballroom and a place card with your meal choice at your assigned table. Seats are not reserved until you have submitted a completed registration form with payment online. Please do not misinterpret a friend's request to be seated together as a confirmed reservation.
Jo Golden with Stampin Up has specially designed a unique handcrafted invitation for the father to personally invite his daughter to the event. Get creative. Send your daughter the invitation by mail, present it to her on a date, place it on her bed with a red rose or give it to her after a day on the slopes--you get the idea.
The live instrumental music during the dinner sets the tone for the evening, and then we dance the night away with a high-energy 8-piece dance band from Noble Productions out of Denver.
Special touches in the ballroom have been added to create a fairy-tale effect. There will be enhanced lighting and fresh-cut flower arrangements designed by the experienced and talented Platte Floral staff. The formal table setting with tea lights helps make this evening a cherished moment to last forever in your daughter's heart.
If you're driving or flying in to the event, or if you just don't want to make the trip home after dancing all night, the Hotel Eleganté has a special rate of $79 for a room. Let them know you're with A Daughter's Heart to receive the special rate.
Our sponsors and donors have generously provided money to assist those in financial need. Contributions are limited to one complimentary ticket per family on a case-by-case basis.
We feel privileged to be able to take a moment to honor our servicemen during the program. A Daughter's Heart recognizes the grave sacrifice that servicemen make for our country and the time they miss with their daughters while out on assignment. Their service and dedication do not go unnoticed or unappreciated.
Ticket costs are the same for large groups, military personnel, and younger children.
Seating is limited, and this event does sell out! Registration closes Saturday, February 18th, or when seats are no longer available.
