Angela Patton is a real hurricane. She is a storm of positive activity and she is changing not only RVA – she is changing the world. Angela started Camp Diva  in 2004 to support young girls and provide them with a positive support system. This Sunday, Camp Diva will hold its 6th Annual Date with Dad Dinner and Dance. In addition to the dance, the entire weekend will be filled with father-daughter activities:

Friday 3/15: ACTIVE DADS – 5:30 PM Downtown YMCA –   An evening of fun, ‘fit’ for dads and their daughters (ages 6 and up), with Zumba, Twister, Yoga by Ryan McPhee, Cooking Demo by FIT FOR KIDS, Kickboxing by DNA Fitness, Hoop Dance by RVA Hoop House, Cheerleading by VSU Woo Woos, and Door Prizes!

Saturday 3/16: DASH FOR DADS 5K/WALK-RUN – 7:00 AM East District Family Resource Center (FRC)

Saturday 3/16: 2ND ANNUAL DANCE OF THEIR OWN – 1:00 PM Richmond City Jail – Camp Diva hosts a special “Date with Dad” dance for a group of inmates at the Richmond City Jail and their daughters, giving them an afternoon of their own with dining, dancing, and fun!

Sunday 3/17: 6TH ANNUAL DATE WITH DAD DINNER AND DANCE – 4:00 PM Richmond Marriott Downtown – The Main Event with Special Guest Actor Chad L. Coleman and Master of Ceremonies Juan Conde

Camp Diva has a Kickstarter to fund, “Locked In NOT Locked Out,” a documentary film about the Father -Daughter dance held at the Richmond City Jail – CLICK HERE to view the Kickstarter.

I’ve seen a lot of great causes in RVA and supporting positivity for young women – while recognizing fathers at the same time has to be one of the best causes that I have ever seen. Huge S/O to Angela and Camp Diva for all the work they have done since 2004. Much success for a great weekend and prayers for many more. #WESEEIT
