Community Bulletin: March 12
Looking for a second chance at prom?
If you were never asked to your high school prom, or if you’re looking for a way to feel young again, now’s your chance to do both.
For their senior project, Quincy High School seniors Claudia Flores and Ruth Garcia, along with their mentor Albert Castro, are putting together a prom for the young at heart.
“We thought about how sometimes people don’t go to prom,” Flores said. “We wanted to give people an opportunity to say they went to their prom.”
The theme of the prom for adults is “A Night In Tokyo.” All proceeds will go to the Vasquez family of Quincy for medical expenses for their son, Roman, who was diagnosed with leukemia for a second time last December. Roman is a student at Pioneer Elementary School.
“I know it’s really difficult to come up with the money on your own,” Garcia said. “I hope people come to have fun and hopefully donate to the cause.”
The event is 8 p.m. to midnight on March 14 at Cave B.
Music is by Castro’s Phase 3 DJ Services. Cost is $10 for an individual ticket or $15 for a couple. All tickets will be sold at the door. No alcohol will be served.
For more information, call 398-0629 or 237-8568.
