After Prom makes a return to OHS

After Prom makes a return to OHS after a one year hiatus.

After Prom is an event typically held at most high schools to promote a safe place for kids to continue prom celebrations. After not having the event in 2023, a determined Prom committee has worked extremely hard to bring it back to us.

Fundraising efforts are needed in order to hold the event. The way the committee has been able to set this up to give students this opportunity is by running two major fundraisers to be able to fund this event. The first was a  Pizza Ranch night Feb.19. This event is held from 4:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. If you eat at Pizza Ranch, a percentage of the money made and all tips will be donated to the funding of After Prom. Another fundraiser is eating at Buffalo Wild Wings, a percentage of all proceeds will also be donated to After Prom.  At Buffalo Wild Wings, patrons are to mention “After Prom” or “Team B” when ordering. 

This year there are six senior Prom committee heads: Samantha Bogen, Mariah Cuellar, Madelyn Fisher, Emma Johnson, and Kate Sande. Izzy Radel said, “A group of parents have worked very hard to create a safe place for kids to continue their celebration of Prom. As a whole the committee is really excited to see the return of After Prom.” 

Kids can come after the Grand March to continue the fun of Prom and also win prizes and play fun games. Bogen said, “Having After Prom back will be helpful because it will keep students at Prom longer to enjoy the night and keep them from making bad decisions.” 

More plans and decisions are being made to make After Prom a successful and fun event.
