Class of 2019 After Prom

Dear Parents of Class of 2019 –

     Vinton County High School will be having their Junior/Senior Prom on Saturday, April 27, 2019, in the high school media center.  In an effort to provide a drug free/alcohol free environment for the Junior and Senior Class to continue celebrating after the dance, we parents are proud to sponsor the 2019 Casino and Games After Party. Once the students have arrived, they cannot leave and come back.  We will provide food, entertainment, games and prizes to encourage students to stay the entire time. (11 p.m. – 3 a.m.)

     In order to do this, we need your help!  We are asking for donations of cash, prizes, cans of soda, individual bags of chips, and cookies/brownies. We also need workers for the event. (Poker and Blackjack Dealers, game workers and judges, people to sign in/out, work food tables, setup, cleanup, etc.) We will be having drawings and games throughout the night to give away prizes such as gift cards/certificates. At the end of the evening we would like to be able to draw for larger prizes. Students must be present to win and we are expecting 125+ to attend.

     If you, your business, or your place of employment can help with this, please send items with your student to the high school. (Desserts can be brought in the day before the event.) You can also send a check (Payable to: VCHS After Prom Committee) and/or gift card donations to:
