Tea honors daughters and dads

By Sara Story - bio | email

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - East Texas girls and their dads spent some quality time together at the Father, Daughter Tea in Tyler.

Fathers and their daughters hit the dance floor and bonded over group activities. "I'm actually from Dallas, so I traveled down here to be with my daughter for this day," said Bobby Manning.

The free event was hosted by the Young Girls with a Purpose organization. The group teaches girls about self-esteem and challenges them to become good community leaders

Debbie Broughton , an organizer of the tea, said, "The girls need to know that they have that role model. If the dad is not there, there is a piece missing out of the puzzle."

The Young Girls with a Purpose organization meets once a month and welcomes all girls to participate.
