This past weekend the “Frozen in Time” Father/Daughter Dance warmed hearts as 200 father/daughter duos arrived to take part in the 2nd-annual dance benefiting Good Samaritan Society Northwood Retirement Community.
Priscilla Olson of Ireland, who has been involved with volunteering her time at Northwood since the 7th grade, organized the event in cooperation with the retirement community as a way of keeping generations, new and old, connected.
Those who attended where able to meet and greet the Frozen sisters, Elsa and Anna, along with their trusty sidekick snowman, Olaf.
Olson, who performed the all-time favorite “Let It Go” as Elsa from the Disney classic, Frozen was in no short supply of tiny little Elsa’s and Anna’s following her every move.
This is the second year Olson has organized a dance event whose proceeds solely benefit Northwood. Last year Olson organized a Grand Ball, a dance for grandparents and grandchildren, as Olson’s aim is to connect younger and older generations through her charity, Illuminating Light; Shine for Senior Citizens.
Funds raised from the event go directly to residents in the skilled and assisted housing at Northwood as the money is divided equally for their activity funds. This years event raised around 2,500 dollars with 100% participation from those who committed to the invite.
