DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) The third annual Wiregrass Mother-Son Dance sold out Friday night. All of the proceeds will go to Childrens Hospital of Alabama.

The event included dinner and dancing along with photo opportunities for attendees.

This dance benefits charity, but it’s also an important night for the mothers and sons that attend.

"It’s kind of all about manners and showing your mom that you can open the car door for her, and sit with your napkin in your lap," explained coordinator Kendall Shows, "it’s just all about fun, these boys cut loose, they go crazy on the dance floor and that is just the best to see them have fun like that!"

Each year the event also names a former or current patient at Childrens as their guest of honor.
