After Prom Party

  • St. Charles Catholic High School students have a great option after prom. The After Prom Party has provided a fun and safe way to end an evening for the past ten years. It has proven to be a great time for all who attend, and there’s the opportunity to win some great prizes. The night ensures that the students have a safe (drug and alcohol-free, supervised) evening after the dance.  

    Communities across the nation have successfully presented exciting and safe parties for high school students to attend following their proms. St. Charles Catholic has joined the movement to provide a sensible and enjoyable celebration following our prom. Our After Prom Party will begin at 12 a.m. (30 min. after prom sign-out begins) and concludes at 4 a.m. with the drawing of our grand prizes. This event is optional and is free of charge for students and their dates.

    This party involves music, dancing, games, food, and lots of prizes. We give away grand prizes such as: laptop computers, IPAD’s, and bikes. The prizes are given away in raffle style as students place “Comet Cash” that they have won in games and contests into APP prize containers throughout the night. Microwaves, dorm size refrigerators, iPhones, iPods, MP3 players, iPads, DVD players, and flat screen television sets as well as gift cards from vendors are just a few of the items that we give away during the party.

    More than 80% of eligible students attend the After Prom Party each year. We truly believe that most young adults will make good choices when provided with a viable option. This special evening cannot be successful without the continued generous support of parents, alumni, business leaders and the entire community.

    After Prom Party Committee extends a special thank you to everyone who donates to this great cause. Making sure the students are safe is our foremost measure of success. “Keeping the kids safe is the drive behind what we do,” says principal Drew Cupit.

    We are always asking for your support, but the good news is that we are not necessarily asking for money. You may choose to sponsor one of the many games or activities. You may also choose to donate prizes. You can provide a prize related to your business (food, oil changes, haircuts, gift certificates). We are also happy to accept new small appliances. Please know that your tax-deductible contribution is greatly appreciated and acknowledged. Donations can be dropped off at school marked “Attn:  APP Chairperson”.   If needed, we can make arrangements to pick up donations at your place of business.

    If you have any questions or want to get involved right away, please contact the school.  Whether you make a one-time donation or would like to join our annual benefactors, we need your help. No donation is too small. If you prefer to mail your contribution now, please do so to the attention of: After Prom Party, St. Charles Catholic High School, 100 Dominican Drive, LaPlace, LA. Please make any checks payable to SCC APP. SCC Tax ID# 72-0847094.

    This event is for the safety of our children, but more importantly our families, our school and our entire River Parish Community.
