CJMP is thrilled to bring back the People’s Prom. This is a dance party fundraiser for Powell River’s community radio station. All proceeds from this volunteer-run event will go to the station to help keep the lights on and the signal lit.
But this year, something’s different.
You are NOT cordially invited to attend this year’s People’s Prom, but you are going to come anyways. The theme this year is ‘Wedding Crashers – Invited or not, you are going to this wedding!’
Prom will be one big wedding reception (without the dinner). Theme colours are ‘sea foam’ and ‘dusty rose’ so dress to impress! Fun wedding attire appreciated! You wanna be the bride and groom? Go right ahead! Do you have an old Bridesmaid dress you are dying to wear again to get your moneys’ worth? Wear it!!! Maybe you want to be a guest! What would you wear to crash a wedding that you weren’t invited to? Do your worst!
And, as always, this is the People’s Prom so you are welcome to come as you are. We just want to see you! It’s been a year, for heaven’s sake!! You don’t need a fancy dress to do the chicken dance! Come on!!!
$10 to get in. McKinney’s is slinging the drinks. There will be a 50/50, a photo booth and special treats so get ready to flash your cash! This is a fundraiser, after all!
What you need to know:
- Where: McKinney’s Vintage Pub in Townsite
- When: 8:00pm to 1:00am
- Cover: $10
- Brooks Dry Grad Safe Rides available on site to get you home
The People’s Prom, that is!! Save the date – March 15, 2019. It was to be March 16 but now it’s March 15. Mark your calendars!!!
Here’s what we know so far – it will be at McKinney’s, there will be DJs and there will be dancing. Stay tuned for more updates and a Facebook event page. The theme will be announced shortly. We look forward to seeing you there!
