The families met in Aliquippa before the event. Gipson added "We had a grand march, had the young ladies line up and come out and do a promenade. Then we were escorted over by a a limousine, we got out and Hollywood walk the red carpet were able to sashay down he red carpet. Then we came in to some nice mellow music to set the mood, had a good meal and the kids had fun."
Ambridge resident Jason Banks who attended with his daughter called the evening a "Night of class."
Gipson shared "A lot of time it gets misconstrued that a lot of young ladies out there are fatherless or don't have someone to adequately represent them. "
The sold out event had over 150 people attend according to organizers.
"As you can can see this event was well represented. I was very proud of the community to come out and support their young daughters as well as the grandfathers who came out and supported today " added Gipson.
