After Prom Event

The Long Reach PTSA is proud to sponsor our After-Prom party following the Prom at the Main Event on May 4th.  After-Prom offers all our Seniors and Juniors and their Prom guests fun-filled activities in an alcohol/chemical/drug-free setting. You don’t have to attend the Prom to attend the After Prom party. Each year more students choose After-Prom as an alternative to private or hotel parties.  We host this celebration because it reduces the likelihood of a tragedy on Prom Night.  


Yes! DO NOT host a private party at your home the night of the After Prom.  Part of what makes After Prom a great event is that all Junior and Senior students attend. Forty-eight American teenagers are killed and 5,202 are injured in vehicular accidents on a typical high school prom weekend in April and May, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation.  Moreover, 40 percent of the deaths are alcohol-related. If they only knew that approximately 1,000 youth under age 21 die each year in preventable tragedies while celebrating their high school proms and graduations (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration).

WHEN: Saturday, May 4, 2019

WHERE: The Main Event Columbia

TIMES: 11:00pm to 3:00am

WHO: All Juniors and Seniors, as well as their dates, are welcome to attend , even if they do not attend Prom.

COST: Tickets cost $10 each and will be available for purchase online in April.



Business sponsorships are available at levels ranging from $250 up to $1,000. For more information see the enclosed business donation form. For more information on becoming a After Prom sponsor, email Carmesha Young lrhsvpptsa@gmail.com
