March 24, 2017 – Prom is one of the most memorable nights of high school for many students at Stillwater. The dress, the tux, the picture taking, the dance. Then what? Well, the After- Prom of course!
Each year after the dance, Stillwater seniors are invited to
continue celebrating at the After-Prom event, hosted by the Stillwater
Central School District and the high school’s Students Against
Destructive Decisions (SADD) club. This is an event that could not
happen without help from the community and donations the district
receives throughout the year.
To help bring the After-Prom to life, the Stewart’s Holiday Match program has continuously donated funds throughout the years. This year, the program will be providing Stillwater High School with $400. This money will go towards activities at the event, such as laser tag, bouncy houses, a photo booth, a hypnotist, as well as snacks, prizes, and more!
“We are always extremely grateful to receive the Stewart’s Holiday Match grant because it helps us provide fun things for the students that perhaps without it, we wouldn’t be able to do,” said SADD Advisor Amy Carpenter. “It’s really important for us to provide the students with a safe and fun environment after the prom and with the donations we receive, we are able to do that. We really want to thank Stewart’s Shops for helping us out again this year.”
The After-Prom committee is currently accepting donations from other community organizations and booster clubs as well. If you would like to make a monetary donation or donate gift cards, snacks or prizes for this year’s event, please email SADD Advisor Amy Carpenter at email@example.com or Assistant Principal Clint Froschauer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
From Thanksgiving through Christmas Day, Stewart’s customers
generously donated to the program, setting a new record in 2016!
Together with their customers, Stewart’s Shops was able to raise more
than $1.85 million. After this record-breaking season, the donations
will help fund local children’s charities, as well as additional
events. The Stewart’s Holiday Match program has now allocated more
than $24 million since the program’s inception in 1986.
