With a night full of dancing and dining, fathers and daughters can make memories as they celebrate Father's Day together.
The O'Neal-Murphy Allstate Agency will present the Father-Daughter Dinner and Dance Gala on Sunday at Savannah Rapids Pavilion.
"It's an event that is geared toward the father and daughter relationship," said Bob O'Neal, an organizer. "It's an evening of elegance."
The gala is black-tie optional, O'Neal said, and it will include a sit-down dinner, dancing and a silent auction. Fathers and daughters can have their photographs taken.
Proceeds will be donated to Augusta's New Bethlehem Community Center, which aids Bethlehem neighborhood with support, programs and activities.
O'Neal said he got the idea after attending a similar night with his daughter last year.
"The event stuck in my mind so much that when I came back, I mentioned it to my partner," he said. "That Father's Day was etched in my mind forever."
Though the dance is aimed at fathers and daughters at least 4 years old, O'Neal said some concessions can be made. Mothers who wish to attend can contact O'Neal.
The pavilion will open at 4 p.m., and dinner will be served from 5-6:30 p.m.
Tickets cost $120 per couple and cost an extra $45 for each additional daughter.
Tickets can be bought at Jim Hudson Lexus on Washington Road, International Formal Wear on Wrightsboro Road and O'Neal Murphy Allstate Agency on Peach Orchard Road.
