FDB FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
When and where is the Ball held?
Saturday, November 4, 2017 @ The Regent, 6437 Watson Rd, Riverview, FL 33578
What time do the doors open and close?
The doors open at 5:30p, the festivities start at 6:00p and the Ball ends at 10:00pm
Will there be any refreshments/meal provided?
Drinks, light refreshments, a meal, candy bar and dessert bar will be available. Dinner will be provided by Caribbean Café and includes: Yellow Rice, Black Beans, Sweet Plantains, Pulled Pork and Chicken.
Who can attend?
A girl of any age and the man in her life who plays the role of father/man of influence. Due to the nature of fostering this father/daughter relationship, moms will not be allowed in the Ball. Attendants will be available as needed, for example, if a young girl needs help in the restroom, or if a father with small girls needs assistance with the refreshments.
Can I buy a ticket and bring my wife?
While we are steadfast supporters of husbands and wives having “date nights”, this IS NOT the forum for such an evening. This evening is about establishing and building a positive, healthy, loving, and supportive relationship with your daughter.
I am a mother/grandmother of an attending father and daughter. Can I come and stand on the sidelines to observe?
While we appreciate your enthusiasm and curiosity for this event – MOTHERS AND ALL OTHER LADIES ARE NOT PERMITTED. Ladies are welcome to be in the lobby as “Mommarazzi" to snap pictures of their loved ones gracing the red carpet, but they will not be able to enter the ballroom or hangout for the evening. In the future, ladies please consider being a volunteer at the event by contacting a Made Wonderfully representative no later than 2 weeks prior to the event. Sorry ladies– this night is about the father/men of influence and daughter's relationship; it’s not about you.
What if my daughter is an infant and is nursing, can my wife come then?
We appreciate that you desire to start this annual tradition with your daughter, regrettably we must ask that if your daughter is nursing and your wife cannot send you with an adequate supply of milk, you refrain from attending this year and wait until next year when you can attend without your wife's presence.
What if I don’t have a daughter? Can I bring my niece or another special young girl in my life?
The event is open to fathers/men of influence and their “special” daughters. If you have a young lady in your life whom you have taken into your heart – then by all means, BRING her to the ball. Regrettably there are too many young ladies in our community who for circumstances beyond her control, do not have a father/man of influence present in the home. She shouldn’t be denied the opportunity to feel like a princess and be treated as the precious jewel that she is because of it – so YES, YES, YES, invite this precious young lady to be your special “date” for the night.
Can I bring my teen-aged son to help me keep track of my daughters throughout the course of the evening?
We would strongly encourage you to enlist the help of a friend and/or older male family member as teenaged boys ARE NOT welcome for the evening. Let’s face it, girls are girls and while your girls won’t think anything about your son being present; this won’t be the case for the other teenaged girls that are present for the evening. PLEASE respect the spirit of the evening by finding another adult male to assist you. Be advised however that any additional males brought to assist you will require that another ticket be purchased.
Do I have to register in advance?
Yes, registration is required. You can register online at www.MadeWonderfully.org/Tickets. Registration will close at 3p on Saturday, Nov 4th or when tickets sell out.
What should we wear?
Many girls will wear nice dresses, even ball gowns and the men may wear suits. However, more casual attire is also completely acceptable.
What kind of dance music can we expect? Can we make song requests?
As a Christian Out-Reach Event you can expect to dance to clean, wholesome dance music spanning several genres and eras. Secular music is selective and limited. Our DJ does allow requests but has the sole right to accept them.
Will there be photographers?
Professional photographers will be present to take free downloadable images of all the guests who sign the photo release form. Instructions will be in each attendee gift bag as to how to acquire those photos.
