Daddy Daughter Date Night 

Who:  You and Your Daughter(s)

When:  Any February Evening

Where:  Your Home or a Favorite Venue

Why: To Spend Time with Your Daughter and To Celebrate Craven Literacy Council’s Mission to Improve Literacy Skills in our Community

The Annual Daddy Daughter Sweetheart Ball has been the largest fundraising event for the Craven Literacy Council.  Our organization and the students we serve depend greatly on the proceeds raised from this event.  Due to Covid-19 we feel it advisable this year not to have the dance in February.  In keeping the spirit of our Daddy Daughter Sweetheart Dance, CLC is encouraging all dads to enjoy a special date night with their daughter(s) during February. 

How Do We Participate:  Make a Donation to Craven Literacy Council

What is Included:

  • With any donation amount, Craven Literacy Council is providing a private video link of dance music led by emcee Roxann Wheeler for dads and daughters to enjoy dancing together. 
  • For donations of $75 or more (1 per daughter, each additional daughter $25), CLC will deliver or mail a Sweetheart Package that includes:  

*Teddy Bear                * Tiara                         *Corsage                     *Picture Frame

*Pizza Coupon             *Raffle Ticket              *Candy                       

*A photo of daughter & dad for the New Bern Sun Journal may be submitted to CLC.
