WARSAW – The 2020 prom event sponsored by the Warsaw Breakfast Optimist Club and several local companies is now open to sophomores, juniors and seniors from the 2019-2020 school year.
The event was previously open to only juniors and seniors but has been updated to include sophomores.
The event is scheduled for 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday, July 12, at Hansen’s Eastlake Skating Center, 3010 Frontage Road Warsaw.
“The Optimist Club has stepped up to be a title sponsor for this event and we are so grateful for their support in allowing this opportunity for these kids. As adults, I think we all remember how special prom was for us during our years in school. It is outstanding to have the support of those in the community to bring this event to our kids,” stated Event Coordinator Trace Hansen.”
In an effort to make this event cost-friendly for everyone, it is an all-inclusive prom event for one price. Businesses that have joined the effort to bring this event to our community at a low price include Jamie Plack Photography, Shawnanigans Catering, Bartel Printing, Male Fashions, GLAM! boutique and Eastlake Skating Center.
Tickets are available online at Warsawoptimist.org, or during business hours at Male Fashions, GLAM! and Eastlake Skating Center. The cost is $30 per individual ticket, which includes a social hour, a plated dinner with table service, a complimentary traditional prom digital picture, dancing and fun. Additional prom photos, poses, group pictures, etc. will be available.
The menu has been finalized and includes grilled chicken, mac n’ cheese and green beans with bacon, and includes beverages and a dessert bar.
“By doing the event on a Sunday, we are hoping families are able to enjoy the day together preparing for this fun event, taking traditional family pictures and having the necessary time to cherish this special day for these students,” Hansen added.
Tickets are available for purchase until the time of the event and will be sold at the door as well. Students from county high schools are permitted to purchase tickets. IDs will be checked at the door and no date over the age of 20 will be permitted.
