Letter: After Prom Committee Seeks Donations

Committee hopes to raise $20,000 for Northwest High School after prom.

Dear Friends & Family of NWHS:

We, as a community, have an obligation to provide a safe and wholesome atmosphere for our children and young adults. Communities across the nation have successfully presented exciting and safe parties for high school students to attend following their proms. Northwest High School has joined the movement to provide a sensible and enjoyable alcohol and drug free alternative celebration following our prom. This is an ambitious project, but the statistics relating to teen alcohol related deaths and deaths in our community underscore the importance of this endeavor.

Northwest High School will hold its annual After Prom on Saturday May 19, 2012. It will begin at Midnight and conclude at 5:00 am. This is an event that provides an exciting party for our Juniors and Seniors and allows them to celebrate after the Prom in a safe environment and keeps them off of the road.  To provide the best event that we can and entice our students to attend, we need approximately $20,000 and we are doing many fundraisers to help raise dollars but in these tough economic times we still need extra assistance. We are asking YOU to consider donating monetarily, through prizes or  food or donations of your time.

We are requesting personal and business donations for this event. Your generous donations would be greatly appreciated. All donations may be mailed to the school address below, PLEASE make sure to address any correspondence to NWHS After Prom and fill out the form attached.

Our After Prom will be held on the same night as many other high schools in Montgomery County so it is imperative that we provide our students with a safe venue to celebrate. We are doing our best to make this an event that excites our students and keeps them out of their cars during these hours.Our students mean a lot to us and we truly want to keep each and every one of them safe. 

No donation is too small. If you prefer to mail your contribution now, please do so to the attention of the After Prom Party at the school’s address. Please make any checks payable to NWHS APP. NWHS Tax ID# 52-2104123. 

We will gladly advertise any business that contributes to our After Prom. If you should have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Rhonda or Dena. Thank you very much again.


Cordially yours,

Rhonda Vann, NWHS PTSA After Prom 

Dena Nicholas, NWHS Boosters Club President
