Tickets are now available for purchase at the seventh annual Senior Gala Dinner Dance set for Wednesday, April 23 at Davis High School.
The theme for this year’s dance will be “Those Were The Days.”
Hosted by Davis County Health Department’s Senior Services, the dance will be held from 6-9 p.m.
The dinner, floor show, and dancing to live Big Band music are again the festivities planned for what is designed to be a senior citizens “senior prom.”
“Being new to the Davis County Health Department, I’ve not had the pleasure of attending any of our previous senior galas,” said Kristy Cottrell, Senior Services division director. “Its excellent reputation has become well-known throughout our county. I can’t wait to enjoy the musical talents of Davis High School with all of our senior citizens who return year after year for dinner, a show, and a chance to dance to some of their favorite tunes,” she said.
“As always, we keep the price low – $7.50 per person Р to make this dinner-dance affordable,” she said.
Tickets can be purchased at the Autumn Glow Senior Activity Center, 801-544-1235 in Kaysville, the Golden Years Senior Activity Center, 801-295-3479 in Bountiful, and the North Davis Senior Activity Center, 801-525-5080, in Clearfield.
The deadline to purchase tickets or for reservations is Wednesday, April 16.
The “Best Dress” event is in the Davis High School Commons and cafeteria at 325 South Main in Kaysville.
The school’s jazz band, along with several talented student singers and dancers, will perform as the Moonlight Orchestra, Moonlight Singers, and Moonlight Dancers providing a floor show and dance music from the Big Band era.
“Of course, my staff loves it each year when our seniors come out and enjoy themselves with memorable music from their earlier days,” said Cottrell. “We also hope that many ‘senior supporters’ decide to escort or even dance with their favorite senior relative, friend, or neighbor.”
Making this event possible are volunteers and donations from local community partners including: Davis High School, Davis High School Jazz Band and student supporters, Davis Behavioral Health, and the Davis County Health Department staff.
