The buzz of prom has started a few months earlier this year than in the past. Starting with the annual popcorn sales, fundraising has commenced.
The common questions of who to bring, what to wear and where to get ready are already being asked. Just one issue...
Will prom even happen? Will we even reach our fundraising goal?
President of the junior class, Mia Soefker, says, “When I look at the months [ahead] we have [the time] to raise money for prom, I am really not worried. We are on a good track for fundraising.”
Popcorn sales are not the only source of fundraising; more is planned. Enough money needs to be raised in order to pay for the DJ, valet, and the venue, which is in a “really fun” undisclosed location.
Mia’s confidence comes as a relief for many who thought fundraising for prom was falling behind. Being most underclassmen's first high school St. Mary’s dance, this prom is important to both the upperclassmen and the underclassmen. Members of Junior Leadership feel as if prom this year is making up for the time we lost last year. To do this, they need to make sure they have enough money to make prom live up to everyone’s expectations.
Given all of this, it is important to donate to the cause of prom. When you are given the chance to take part in fundraising, please do, because our prom depends on all of us.
