Be nice to know what the money is for??? How much is needed?? Has the Committee raised any money all year?? Why a shortfall?? A little more info and I might contribute. The concept is a good one so I'm interested. Are only monetary donations accepted?? Lots of questions.....

Hi Chuck - Grad Nite is an adult supervised event which takes place at NHS on the night of graduation in order to allow our graduates to celebrate their accomplishment in an environment that is free of drugs and alcohol.The event was started in 2001 after the National Highway Traffic and Safety Commission declared graduation night as one of the deadliest in the lives of teenagers. The event is offered at no charge so all graduating students may participate. The funds raised are used towards food and entertainment for the students. The committee has been holding fundraisers throughout the year and will continue to do so, including a Spring Fling Dinner Dance and Silent Auction to be held at the Elks Club on May 31. The committee will be contacting local businesses for their support as well including food donations. Although monetary donations are critical to the cause, donations of items for our Silent Auction are useful as well. The funds we raise this year are intended to not only pay for the Class of 2014, but generate a start-up fund for the Class of 2015.
