Several businesses and organizations that donated $500 to PromFest were recognized by the Morris Community High School PromFest committee earlier this summer.

Among those recognized were Exelon’s Dresden Station, Hearing Solutions and Environtech, as well as the city of Morris, the Grundy County Sheriff’s Department, the Grundy County State’s Attorney’s Office and Saratoga School District 60C.

The MCHS PromFest committee thanks everyone involved for supporting the 2013 Prom Fest.

There have been many words of thanks and positive comments from parents and students, thanking the committee for what it does with the post- prom festivities.

The PromFest committee would like to let everyone know that it would be impossible if it weren’t for the generous donations from local businesses, community leaders and volunteers.

This has certainly proven to be a safe and fun alternative for many MCHS students. Since the event is held off campus, the students are required to stay for the complete PromFest and parents know they are safe.

This year’s PromFest was held at Enchanted Castle in Lombard. Students enjoyed laser tag, arcade games, a hypnotist, karaoke, bumper cars and more.

The students enjoyed having pizza, pop and ice cream. They also had a chance to win prizes, cash and college scholarships that included $500 scholarships for students who attended both the junior and senior year PromFests.

With the continued support of the community, the PromFest committee hopes this will be a continued tradition to provide a drug- and alcohol-free event.
