SHELBY – Raymond James of Medina dances with his daughter Tanaya, 2, during the Father-Daughter Dance on Saturday at the Shelby Volunteer Fire Company.

The Ladies Auxiliary put on the event for the first time on Friday. The event was sold out with 150 people attending.

“It’s nice for the dads to be able to do something nice with their daughters,” said Julianne McGrath, one of the event organizers. “It’s by far exceeded our expectations.”

The rec hall was transformed into a dance floor for fathers and their daughters on Saturday.

Tim Elliott of Medina dances with his daughter Madelyn, 7. Tim said he was thankful for a chance to take his daughter out on a date.
