Appleton City Junior Class Advisors Seeks Donations for After Prom Party

The Appleton City Junior Class Advisors are in need of donations to help support the all-night, After Prom Party that is held yearly for the junior and senior students who attend Prom and their dates.

Yearly, the Junior Class Advisors in Appleton City host an After Prom Party that lasts from end of Prom through the night and into the next mornings. The party is a lock-in that provides a safe, drug and alcohol-free environment for Prom goers. It is a “lock-in” that will begin immediately following Prom on April 14th.

The students of Appleton City eagerly anticipate the event, and it has been very successful since the tradition started. However, this After Prom Party does not happen without the many generous supporters in Appleton City and the surrounding communities.

The Junior Class Advisors are once again asking generous supports to help fun this fun-filled and safe night for the junior and seniors who attend prom and their dates. The amount attending Prom this year is 150, so that is the number of people the After Prom Party has to be able to accommodate.

All donations will be used to purchase things to make the After Prom Party as successful as possible. To donate you will mail your donations with the donations form to ACHS After-Prom Celebration at 408 West 4th Street in Appleton City.
