Dance the Night Away at the Annual YMCA Teddy Bear Ball

Don’t miss out on a great evening at the annual Teddy Bear Ball. Everyone gets spiffed up for fun and dancing on Saturday, February 7, from 7:00 – 9:00 pm at the Lake County Central Y in Painesville.

Young girls, ages 6 – 15, are invited to bring her father, uncle, grandfather, etc. for our dance.

Festivities will include a DJ, special keepsake and snacks. A photo booth will also be open all night for keepsake photos.

“The last few years, we have had more than 80 couples attend the Teddy Bear Ball,” said Elisa Hennies, Youth Development Director at the Lake County Central Y. “It’s special to see groups of fathers rent a limo and take their daughters out to dinner before coming here to dance the night away. Everyone has a really great time together.”

For Y Members, registration is $10 per person. Program Members may register for $15 per person. The Teddy Bear Ball is for girls, ages 6-15, and her father, uncle, grandfather, etc.
