Lakes Region Mom Prom is Not Just for Moms

BELMONT — Looking for a fun "Girls Night Out" in the Lakes Region? You don't have to be a mom to attend our Mom Prom! Belmont High School PTO has been busy planning the delicious treats, bright decorations and upbeat music to make Saturday, March 8 a memorable evening.

Gather your girlfriends, relatives and co-workers to share an inexpensive night of dancing, shopping and mingling all for $20 per ticket ($25 at the door). There will be a DJ playing favorite dance tunes from the '70s, '80s, and beyond from 7-10 .pm in the perfect prom setting, the high school gym. Summarized by one ticket holder, "It's all of the fun of prom without the stress of a date".

Included is an appetizer and dessert bar to provide guests with extra energy, along with a selection of non-alcoholic beverages to keep people hydrated.

Ladies are encouraged to look in their closets, or shop the local consignment and thrift shops to find a cocktail dress, bridesmaid dress, or prom dress. The evening is all about having fun, so don't stress over the dress. One lucky prom participant will leave with the honor of "Tackiest Dress", so keep that in mind when you are deciding what to wear. Leggings, big hair, and wild colors of the '80s are also a terrific option. Proceeds from our event will assist the PTO in offering programs and funding initiatives for BHS faculty, students, parents and the general public.

Not into dancing? Come for the shopping and "girl talk". The PTO has lined up some vendors to showcase their wares for a great shopping experience. Need to stock up on products by Norwex, Pampered Chef, or Tastefully Simple? They will all be at our event. Looking for a special gift? We've got tables offering jewelry by Silpada Designs and Origami Owl, bags by Thirty One, and incredible scents by PartyLite and Denutte's Delights.
