WAYNE – Record numbers were broken again during the first of two dances put on by Wayne Elementary Boosters.

According to a release from WEB, the Sixth annual Holiday Daughter Dance was held on Friday, December 13 at the elementary school. The theme was “Hawaiian Luau” for girls and their fathers and father-figures.

The event broke all records in its six-year history by raising $6,600 and selling 350 tickets. Over 90 businesses, organizations, parents and teachers donated auction items as over 40 parents donated food or time to help.

The evening offered dancing to tunes by PinMonkey Entertainment, a photo booth by Laura Robinett, candid photos by Sue Hansen and Melissa Derechailo, a chocolate fountain and lots of desserts. Leis were handed out to every guest, thanks to Roeber Repair LLC.

First grader Sofia Elliot won the raffle for Husker football tickets and Isabella Bondhus won the raffle for the six-foot-tall inflatable unicorn donated by Mr. Hoskins and the sixth-grade teachers.

WEB invests funds back into the school and has already spent $10,000 this school year on a variety of resources, such as One School One Book, Nebraska Authors, back to school supplies and experiences like the dance, the Fun Run and Dean Jacobs.

WEB would like to thank everyone in the community who supports WEB, and in particular, special events like the dances.

WEB will next host the Valentine Son Dance on Friday, February 7 for boys and their mothers and mother-figures. For more information, like Wayne Elementary Boosters on Facebook or visit www.wayneweb.org.
