Project Prom requires at minimum $28,000. Really, $40,000 is a good number to shoot for to have a memorable event where every kid goes home with something great.
Round numbers...Main Event costs $18,000.
Right now the Class of 2017 has about $1,900 which has accumulated over three years from participation in prior class "Cow Patty Bingo" and "Bulldog Jackpot" ticket sales. The class will also realize the income from parking lot sales, which is a few thousand dollars. Needless to say, the Class of 2017 has a long way to go. We have not covered the cost of the facility and have nothing to give away as prizes for the kids.
