This month, Alternatives For Girls held its second prom! The event was held for the girls and women in AFG’s programs who were not able to attend their own prom. On the day of the event, staff and volunteers transformed a local community room into a beautiful ballroom. Thanks to many generous individuals, businesses, and groups, the room was complete with sound, lighting, a special favor bar with lots of candy, and formal tablescapes.
Before the prom began, the girls and women were pampered by volunteer hairstylists and makeup artists. Once they were ready, they put on their beautiful dresses, shoes, and accessories, which were all donated by generous individuals, and walked down the red carpet. After getting their photo taken, the party began!
Everyone enjoyed a delicious dinner, complete with amazing desserts. A special recognition ceremony was held for the New Choices program’s two Peer Leaders who are graduating from the program. Both women were crowned Prom Queen, and everyone in attendance helped them celebrate their many accomplishments.
Finally, it was time to dance! The dancing and celebration continued until the night came to a close. Each girl and woman left with a smile on their face, grateful for experiencing the special evening.
Alternatives For Girls would like to thank all of the donors and volunteers who made the AFG Prom possible! We could not have done it without your support.
