As I write this, there are eight days left in my high school career. This is crazy to think about… and a few weeks after that is prom and graduation. I am extremely excited about both of these events.
When discussing plans for after prom with my group, we saw a void of things to do that are local. Being as involved in event planning as I am, I wanted to try to get involved with the community to plan something.
After speaking with Tricy Cushner of Alliance For Safe Kids, we conceptualized the idea of a after prom party in Yorktown. Our main idea was to have seniors design the party. A survey was released to the Class of 2012 and students' input was taken into consideration when putting together the party. Whatever seniors wanted at this event, we worked hard to obtain.
"After Prom with a Twist at Bounce" was born. From 12 a.m. to 3 a.m., prom attendees are invited to continue the celebration in Yorktown. Thanks to the generosity of the community, the event will be completely free - admission, food and raffle tickets.
will be on site with free t-shirts and their mobile frozen yogurt and toppings station to . will also be present creating coffee and frozen drinks. Food from Taco Bell will be provided along with other fun foods.
truly is the perfect place for our event. A DJ will play music as students continue to dance the night away. Both the arcade and inflatable jousting area will be available as well. A photo booth will preserve the memories for years to come.
The entire night will be filled with amazing prize giveaways. Every half hour, dozens of prizes will be given away, everything from Yankee Tickets, an iPad, tons of gift cards from local establishments that are perfect for anyone going to college or looking for some fun this summer, a flat screen TV and much, much more!
This party is going to be a great time for all who attend and the opportunity to win some great prizes is up for grabs.
Also, comedian Adam Mamawala will be performing and people can view his performances at adammamawala.com
The community has truly come together to make this a great night for all seniors and I am very happy to be a part of it.
