With Valentines Day just around the corner, many girls wait for the perfect guy to ask them to be their valentine, but this year the roles in the relationship are switched. Im excited for this years sweet heart dance because girls get to ask guys, said junior Breanna Long.
Every year JGHS Key Club puts on the winter formal Sweethearts Dance previously known as the Snowball Dance. We decided to change the theme from Snowball to Sadie Hawkins Sweetheart because the snowball was slowly dying down and no one came, said junior Key Club treasurer Zac Klies. This is different and new and I think many students will like it.
While the Snowball was dying down, the race to come up with a new theme was on. Since most of the other schools in the area had a Sweethearts Dance, naturally that was an option, but when the idea of Sadie Hawkins was mentioned, Key Club couldnt refuse an idea that could help raise so much more money.
Since it cost $5 for a couple and $3 for singles, many may wonder where their money goes. The money raised from this dance will go towards pennies for patients which is an organization that raises money for children with cancer, said Key Club adviser Heather Barclay.
In addition to helping save lives, girls also look forward to having fun with asking guys. All of our school dances are the same most people dont go and they get boring, said junior Taylor Wade. But I think that this dance is unique and that it will be a lot of fun.
Since this dance has a new and exciting theme, many are hopeful it will be successful. I think well raise a lot of money, said Klies. People know its for a good cause and will show their support.
The dance will be held on Saturday, Feb. 25, and the tickets will be sold during lunches from Feb. 21 to 24.
