On Saturday May 2nd, the Teen Advocacy Coalition, TAC, sponsored an After Prom Party at the Koplitz Field House. This event was free to anyone that attended prom. Activities included a photo booth, video games, a caricature artist and plenty of free snacks. Students had the opportunity to win raffle prizes which included a Kindle Fire, gift cards and a GoPro Camera System.
“We started planning for the party back in December,” Gracie Manlow, TAC Project Coordinator, said. “Several students were involved with the brainstorming and implementation of the event.”
Students that did not attend the prom were also invited to participate. By volunteering their time at the event, the underclassmen were invited to participate in the activities and enter the raffle for prizes.
“We wanted to make sure everyone was included in the event,” Manlow said. “Even if an upperclassman decided not to attend the prom, the still had the option to be included in the fun.”
26 student volunteers and 14 community members made the event a success. About 55 prom attendees took advantage of the free After Prom Party. The activities concluded around 1:30 a.m.
