Church plans father/daughter dance

Tickets are now on sale for Mosaic Church’s annual “Daddy/Daughter Date Night.”

This year’s theme is the “Royal Ball.” Attendees will enjoy a great meal together. The girls also will have fun making a craft that they can take home with them. And then there’s the main event — Cinderella and Belle will be hosting a magnificent dance party.

The event is open to everyone, but registration is required. Child tickets are $15. Dads/grandpas are free. In previous years, the event has sold out quickly. Registration can be done online at mosaichighland.com/dance.

Mosaic Church is located at 1317 Pestalozzi St. in Highland.
