"This is a great opportunity for teens to celebrate prom safely," Stephanie Armitage, UP! Coalition Coordinator
(PRWEB) April 10, 2013
The Unified Prevention! (UP!) Coalition for a Drug-Free Doña Ana County and coalition partners are gearing up for an exciting after prom party, providing an alternative to drinking and partying during a time that often includes high levels of drinking among teens.
The After Party is scheduled for April 27 from midnight to 4 a.m. at the Cineport 10 in the mall. The event will be free for all Doña Ana County high school students.
UP!, an initiative of the Community Foundation of Southern New Mexico (CFSNM), worked with local businesses and sponsors who generously offered over $1000 in prizes as incentives for students to attend, including a 32-inch flat screen television.
Allen Theaters will provide five midnight movies at the Cineport for all high school students following prom, however students do not need to attend prom to get into the movie. The After Party will include Giant Twister, x-box, karaoke, open mic, Minute to Win It and a photo booth. Local agencies and businesses will be on hand with educational booths.
To be a chaperone for the event or to become a sponsor, contact Stephanie Armitage, UP! Coalition Coordinator, at 575.521.4794 or stephanie(at)cfsnm(dot)org(dot)Info.
