AFTER PROM COMMITTEE SPECIAL REQUEST
hank you for your kind words and support of our Senior Class. Our district has planned a beautiful graduation ceremony that balances our health and safety with our desire to celebrate our seniors' accomplishments. Because they will be unable to take part in Prom and After Prom, the After Prom Committee decided to divide the money we collected through fundraising this year among all of our seniors and present them with a gift card to be included in their diploma envelopes. Would you like to help us increase the dollar amount of the gift cards? Please consider making a donation to the West Geauga After Prom. Any amount is appreciated. We only have this week to collect donations.
Please submit donations by Friday, May 22, 2020.
You can send checks made out to
