Ladies, romance your significant other at 'Sadie Hawkins Day' dance and support seniors' centre fundraiser

Proceeds from the event with help cover operating costs and support senior's activities

The Cosmo Seniors Centre is hosting a fundraiser “Sadie Hawkins Day” to be held Thursday, February 29th (leap day) from 7:30 pm - 11:30 pm. Doors open at 6:30. Everyone is welcome! The event will go to help cover operating costs and to support senior’s activities such as line dancing, pickleball, shuffleboard and various card events. 

The music will be provided by D.J. Rottweiler. Selections range from the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s which will cater to everyone’s taste. The D.J. will accept personal requests, so if you have a favourite song, just let him know.

Tickets are available at the Cosmo Centre in advance for $15.00 or at the door for $20.00. Drinks are $5.00 each. Taco in a bag is being served for the luncheon. Please note: If your birthday is Feb. 29th, you get in for free, just bring in two pieces of I.D. 

We celebrate the Cosmos Centre and how it holds a special place in the hearts of Moose Jaw seniors and their families. Come out and celebrate “Sadie Hawkins Day,” by helping support the local community and have a great time doing it! 

So ladies, grab your significant other and escort him or her to the “Sadie Hawkins Day” dance. Opening the door to new horizons, the “Sadie Hawkins Day” will flip the conversation from him to her. The reason is, historically, it was illegal for women to ask men to marry. However, in Ireland, the governing bodies set aside one day every four years for women to take the bull by the horns and ask or demand marriage as they saw fit. So, Leap Day - February 29th was the day women would legally ask men to marry.

However, Sadie Hawkin’s father took it a step further and had a foot race with all the local bachelors. The one she caught would become her husband. So ladies, if it didn’t happen on Valentine’s Day the way you were hoping and you are thinking of proposing, let the Leap Day tradition and the folks at the Cosmo Centre help you make it happen at the “Sadie Hawkins Day” dance. Gentlemen, if you missed Valentine’s Day, take the opportunity to propose at the dance, just let them know ahead of time and they will set it up for you.

Cosmo Seniors Citizens Centre is located at  235 – 3rd Ave NE. For more information please call 692-6072 or email:
