Margeaux commented: “We are encouraging the community to play, learn, and grow which is Metro Parks’ mission statement.” The purpose of the event is to have a community event and for daughters and their father figures to have a special moment once a year.
Margeaux commented on the event: “I think this is a unique opportunity for the south Tacoma community to have a fun night for fathers and daughters once a year and make memories for the future.”
Margeaux mentioned the best thing about the event: “The center is a beautiful location for an evening dance and a great place for kids and families to come and congregate together.”
She revealed the unique thing about the event, “It’s unique in our décor and the level of excellence that the Star Center is known for. We will put together a really beautiful event with nice center pieces, nice music, and the environment is top notch, with a building that’s brand new with a really nice evening.”
