For the past seven years, the Rising Sun After Prom has helped provide a safe, fun event for out communy’s students on what is statistically one of the most dangerous nights of the year.
The After Promserved to be an alternative e to some of the other, more destructive choices that students sometimes make and success and a wonderful way for out community to come together.
After Prom has been the recipient of wide spread community support but might still be unfamiliar with some people. The event is held at the Rising Sun Churvh of Christ immediately following prom and lasts until around 4 a.m. The students must be signed in by midnight and cannot leave before 4 a.m. unless a parent comes and signs them out. It features music, games, food and prizes but most importantly a fun and safe way for our high school students to spend prom night.
Although the event is held at the Rising Sun Church of Christ, it takes the entire community to make the After Prom a success. The After Prom committee is made up of individuals from all over the Rising Sun area who work tirelessly to make sure that this event is something that the entire communitycan be proud of. We care for the students in our area and work to make sure that they are safe, but also have fun.
Over the year, the suppot from the community has been amazing and we consider it very encouraging that our friends and neighbors believe in this event and are willing to demonstrate it. However, like many things in our economy, the After Prom is faving financial issues. We certainly don’t want to see the After Prom fade away but in order for that to be avoided, we need the assistance of our community.
If you would like to make a doation to the After Prom (all donations are tax deductible), you can send it to the Rising Sun Church of Christ, 430 Fifth Street, Rising Sun, IN 47040. These donations are used strictly for the After Prom. Checks should be made to theRising Sun Church of Christ, c/o After Prom. Your hel and support is remendously appreciated. Please help us ensure that this fantastic event continues.
