Canyon City Doctor Travels 175 miles to Father Daughter Dance

The annual Father Daughter Dance at the Greeley Recreation Center is right around the corner. The event this year is Friday, January 25 and Saturday, January 26 and offers three different times for fathers to treat their favorite girl to some quality time together. Dr. Marcus Button, a family practice physician from Canyon City, plans to make the 175 mile trek again to bring his 9 year old daughter. A trip he’s made each year over the last five years!

The Father Daughter Dance has a Disco theme this year and tickets are on sale now for all three dances – Friday at 6pm, and Saturday at 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. “I grew up in Greeley and I’ve made a point to take at least one of my five daughters to a dance each year. The one in Greeley is worth planning on going to and the kids like the activities offered,” stated Dr. Button. “Going to these dances helps build a relationship between a father and daughter and provides such great memories. Plus the girls appreciate the individual attention.” Button frequents other father daughter dances across the state in Canyon City and Colorado Springs as well.

Tickets are $40 per couple in advance, $45 the day of the dance, and $10 for each additional daughter. The price includes the dance, a professional photograph, finger foods and other photo booths opportunities for selfies. “It’s a nice community event that should not be overlooked by dads. It’s a great foundational event to spend some quality time one-on-one with your kids. I’m thankful Greeley Recreation makes this possible,” said Button. Tickets can be purchased at the Family FunPlex (1501 65th Ave), the Greeley Recreation Center (651 10th Ave) or by calling 970-350-9400. The Father Daughter Dance is sponsored in part by Music Man DJ, Balloon Art by Merry Makers, Mariposa Plants, Flowers and Gifts, Dana Orthodontics, UNC Catering, Weld Waits, Tri-102.5, K99 and The Tribune.
