Free Prom 2016 The organizers of the Free Prom 2016, would like to thank the following supporters: The free prom was set up 3 years ago by me, Scott Collins. Starting this year, we had a committee consisting of myself and some of the parents of the attendees. We are at this time trying to organize, to become a nonprofit in time for our Free Prom 2017, which at this time, is already in the planning stages. The Free Prom is a way for kids between grades 9-12, or up 20 years old, who did not have a chance to go to a school prom or who are home schooled or just simply could not afford to go, to have a chance. The cost for prom is almost $100.00 per couple not including dinner and hair do’s and extras. With the free prom, the dress code is Sunday best unless you wish to be formal, in which case, we find or are donated, dresses, shoes, suits etc, to help the kids/parents with the cost of dressing up. The guest receives a free limo ride to the event from a designated drop off location (usually one of our sponsor’s parking lots.) The female guests receive a red carnation or flower, donated by a local florist, then all the guest get professional pictures, along with food and drink (heavy Hors d’oeuvres). Then they dance the night away to the latest music by a local DJ that ONLY PLAYS CLEAN VERSIONS of today’s most popular hits from rock to country. If it doesn’t have a clean version, it isn’t played. If they are over 18 and smoke, they are not allowed to smoke during the event. Also, there are always several chaperones on hand and security provided by the Elizabeth City Police Department, as they have an officer that comes by about every 15 mins to make sure there are no problems. All guest are identified by wristbands and no wristband means no entry. When the event is over, the guest is escorted out by a chaperon to the responsible person picking them up. We encourage parents to drop by and check out the event so they can feel comfortable with entrusting their kids to our care for the night. The residents of Virginia Dare Apartments also get in on the fun for the evening as they are designated as door people, registration/check in person, or just an extra hand to chaperone. The chaperones and staff of the event wear badges stating “Event Staff” to ensure they can be sought out easily in the event there is any issue. Our sponsors include those we have listed along with local businesses and private individuals who wish to remain anonymous. Bob’s Guns also does gun repair!
