It's time again for fathers to look forward to a special night with their daughters as the Father-Daughter Ball is just days away.

Turner, an award winning performer of illusions who has been seen on Good Morning America, Nightline, CNN Headline News and in other media outlets.
Tickets are $40 per father, $30 for first daughter and $20 each additional daughter available only through advance sales. The deadline to purchase tickets is Monday Jan. 25.
