    Priscilla Olson of Jasper, dressed as Elsa from "Frozen," performed "Let it Go" as girls gathered around to catch confetti during the daddy-daughter dance at Jasper Middle School in Jasper on Saturday. The dance was organized by Illuminating Life - Shine for Senior Citizens, and proceeds go to the residents at Northwood Good Samaritan Health. Olson started Illuminating Life - Shine for Senior Citizens when she was in 7th grade. "We want to bridge the gap between generations," Olson said. "My charity is to honor (my grandfather). He always taught me to live by the golden rule and give back to others." Olson is home on her winter break from the University of Alabama and wanted to do something charitable over her break.
