Donations and volunteers sought for Waukon High School Project Prom 2015

Waukon High School Prom 2015 is scheduled for Saturday, April 25. Parents of the high school students are again hosting the annual substance-free Post Prom event at the former Waukon Junior High School gymnasium immediately following Prom, from midnight until 4 a.m.
Very strong past support from parents of the Waukon High School student body, as well as from local businesses and civic organizations, has resulted in the continued success of providing Prom-goers with a safe alternative for celebrating the annual event. That support has provided these young adults with games, food, entertainment and prizes at the Post Prom event each year.
Assistance is needed for the event in the following two areas:
Financial Support - Always a top priority, expenses for the Post Prom event have exceeded $10,000 in the past, with the popular hypnotist being the largest expense but also proving to have increased attendance in past years. Prizes for those in attendance are also a main expense. Most donations to the Post Prom event come in monetary form, which are then used to purchase prizes from local businesses.
Workforce Support - There are a number of committees that can use volunteer assistance to help make Post Prom the best it can possibly be. There is the initial set-up taking place Friday, April 24, the working of the games, food, prizes and supervision the evening/morning of the event, and the clean-up to follow Sunday, April 26.
