Dear Panhellenic Sisters,
I wanted to share a request that I think might be a fun volunteer activity for Alumnae Panhellenic and/ or for your local alumnae group:
PACE prom is Saturday May 4th and will be held at the Palmer Munroe Teen Center (1900 Jackson Bluff Road).
I serve on the board of directors for PACE Leon.
PACE values all girls and young women, believing each one deserves an opportunity to find her voice, achieve her potential and celebrate a life defined by responsibility, dignity, serenity and grace.
Our mission is to provide girls and young women an opportunity for a better future through education, counseling, training and advocacy.
The school is guided by the philosophy that PACE values all girls and young women, believing each one deserves an opportunity to find her voice, achieve her potential and celebrate a life defined by responsibility, dignity, serenity and grace.
A number of you have already stepped up to the plate to be fairy godmothers with donations of dresses, shoes, accessories, and salon services.
While we have chaperones covered with teachers, administrators, and a few Board members what we DO need is help with decorations! Are you creative? Do you like to roll up your sleeves and be hands on making dreams come true?
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to help transform the gym at Palmer Munroe Teen Center into a festive prom fantasy!
When: Saturday, May 4th, 2 pm
What: Prom Decorating
Where: Palmer Munroe Teen Center, Jackson Bluff Road, next to SAIL High
Who: you, PACE Board members, and PACE staffers.
Tasks: Need to blow up and set up balloons, drape the walls, decorate tables.
And — Anyone super creative that wants to help figure out centerpieces for 7 tables and 3 serving tables would be very welcome as well! Colors are black red and white — the PACE colors!
And finally — we could use gifts to give the dance contest winners.
We are looking for prizes for 8 potential winners — the judges award 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and also an honorable mention 4th place category, too. Good prizes for teens would be gift certificates to places like the movies, Starbucks, Panera, Jimmy John’s, etc. And the girls have dates so prizes have to be gender neutral so the boys will enjoy them, too.
I also have a Facebook event page related to our efforts to outfit the girls for the event. Thank you to the Alumnae Panhellenic ladies who have already responded to that online!
