Prom tickets are $20 for individuals and $35 for pairs. Raffle tickets are a $1 but if you purchase the $10, $20, or $50 packages you get to enjoy watching Bernice, Erica, or Ted fill them out for you!

For more details of what prizes are available please check the Facebook Event

We’ll be accepting payments in person (cash, check, or card) and online (PayPal). Please be aware that there is a small sum added to the total to cover the cost of transaction fees.
