Grad Night 2010 News
ALL-NIGHT 2010 GRAD PARTY
TICKET ORDER FORM
NOTE: We need this payment by at least 75 students, otherwise we will have to cancel Grad Night plans!
Attention Parents of Seniors:
The All-Night Senior Grad Party is an event that the senior class parents organize and is not a school-sponsored event. The goal is to provide a fun, safe, supervised, and sober graduation celebration with all-night entertainment.
The event takes place on the night of graduation beginning at about 10:00 p.m. with organized bus transportation picking up students, traveling to surprise destinations with entertainment, food, and music, and then returning them early in the morning of the following day. The party is designated as drug and alcohol free. For security reasons, no "in and out" privileges are extended.
How big an event, where it is held, and what is offered is totally up to US – the senior parents!
___Yes, I would like to sign up my future grad to participate in the Class of 2010 All-Night Grad Party to be held Tuesday, June 15, 2010, 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.! Please complete form and mail to our treasurer with your check:

GRAD NIGHT GENERAL FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITIES (For ALL Grad Night Committees)
Dealing for Dollars
West Coast Entertainment offers an opportunity to pay down the ticket price. They are in need of Blackjack Dealers for their party events this holiday season, and are willing to train Grad Night parents to work at these parties. For each night, you will receive a $50.00 credit, which will pay down your total ticket price. Kids 16 years and over can train with their parents/guardians.
The biggest benefit for participating in "Dealing for Dollars" is that you can have the entire ticket paid off, with no cost to you. Training is free. For example, one couple worked together at the holiday events. At $50 per person, per event, they paid off their child's ticket in just two events!
