What are your plans for this Saturday, April 26th? Cancel them. We have better plans. Plans that are fun and benefit children. Yes! It’s 826CHI’s annual prom fundraiser!
This year’s theme – Prom 9 From Outer Space: A Galactic Romp Through the Retro-Futuristic Cosmos.
Attendees will forgo ill-fitting rental tuxes and bustling taffeta for all manner of tin-foiled, corsetted, ray-gunned getups sure to impress the creature on their arm. Come dressed in your intergalactic best (or second-hand formal wear) for a night of cosplay, silent auctioning, raffling, (free) drinking, and dancing. All proceeds from benefit 826CHI’s creative writing programs, which are offered tuition-free to thousands of Chicago students each year.
When: Saturday, April 26, 8pm-midnight
Where: St. Vincent de Paul Center Gymnasium (2145 N Halsted St)
Tickets: $55 for one, $100 for two, $60 at the door
