February 13, 2014 (San Diego)-- Tonight, the Armed Services YMCA San Diego (ASYMCA) will be hosting the 8th Annual Father & Daughter Dance: Sweet Moments, giving 450 active duty and retired military dads and their daughters a special night of family bonding. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, hundreds of active duty service members and their little girls will spend this elegant evening celebrating a valued relationship and creating memories that will be cherished for a lifetime. From dancing to dinner to professional photography, the San Diego community has come together to make this event unforgettable for all in attendance.

Special guests include event sponsor, Avant Garde, along with STAR 94.1 radio personality Janissia Castillo and her military dad.

The dance will be held at The Town & Country Resort located at 500 Hotel Circle N., San Diego, CA 92108. 

With frequent deployments and numerous relocations, family bonding time is hard to come by for military families. The Father & Daughter Dance provides girls of all ages the opportunity to spend the night by daddy’s side and create memories than can be looked back on for a lifetime.

As part of the ASYMCA’s commitment to making military life easier, the annual dance is held to celebrate and cherish the relationship between a military dad and his daughter. Learn more about this program at the ASYMCA’s website at
