Â 02/21/12 The Ladies Auxiliary of the Plymouth Eagles Lodge 1900 continues to find creative ways to raise funds for this yearâ€™s Indiana state Eagles project. According to Auxiliary Vice-President Hollie Wenzel, the Second Chance Prom event being held next Saturday night came about as several members began brainstorming ideas.
The local Eagles Club is holding a â€śSecond Chance Promâ€ť for those who missed their high school proms or just want to relive the fun of a prom. All oft the proceeds from the event will be added to funds from other fundraisers to help get to their local goal of $3,000. Their contribution, along with funds from all over the state, will be given to Rileyâ€™s Hospital for Children towards a purchase of a pediatric ambulance. Wenzel said the ambulance will be equipped with special equipment including those needed for surgery mid-transport. All in all, the Eagles Clubs have pledged $250,000 towards the project.
Wenzel said, â€śWeâ€™re all about helping people.â€ť
Although ticket sales the prom event has been going very strong, Wenzel would like to invite the entire community to join in the fun. Tickets are $15 per person or $25 per couple. Tickets can be purchased at the door the night of the event or at the Little Store in Plymouth.
The decorating committee is using the theme of â€śFrost Yourself with Diamondsâ€ť and plans to turn the upstairs room at the Eagles into a winter wonderland.
Proving music for the night will be volunteer D J s Brandon VanVactor and Brandon Kuskye. Also donating all of his services will be photographer Russ Perdieu of Vintage Ford Photos.
During the evening a King and Queen of the prom will be crowned. They will be chosen by popular vote, according to Wenzel.
