generic-gift-cardDo you have gift cards tucked away in a drawer or in your purse that you have had for months and have good intentions to use, but haven’t.  Gift cards are often given in good intention, but so many go unused.  After Prom comes to the rescue and will happily collect any unused gift cards and repurpose them to raise money for After Prom.  We can use gift cards in basket raffles and door prizes at our fundraising events.  If you have gift cards to donate, please contact Tamara at WGAfterProm@yahoo.com.






The Class of 2016 will depend on the current Junior parents to plan another amazing After Prom.  Looking for an organized and energetic Junior parent who wants to be the chairperson for After Prom for the Class of 2016.  If you attend some meetings now the transition from the current class to the next will be much easier.

Junior parents traditionally handle the clean up for the senior class.  We would love to have a Junior parent round up their friends to plan an early morning party on Saturday, May 16th to clean up After Prom and plan to store what they might want to repurpose for next year.  It will be the start of new friendships and a year long project that is very much appreciated by our students.

dont-forget-sticky-noteDon’t forget to send in your parent donation.  Donations help off set the costs of After Prom and help to keep After Prom tickets to just $15.00.  It takes $30,000 to host After Prom, pay for entertainment, food, prizes and to keep our students safe on the night of Prom.  Please help support After Prom in any way you can.
