Crescent Vally High School will be holding a “Parent Prom” on Saturday, March 3rd at their cafeteria. The event is slated for 8 p.m. at Crescent Valley High School, 4444 N.W. Highland Drive, Corvallis.
The prom is for adult parents in Corvallis, Philomath and Albany and includes music, refreshments, a photographer and a silent auction.
The event is to help fundraise for three local non-profit organizations: Children’s Miracle Network, Old Mill Center and the Jackson Street Youth Shelter.
The Children’s Miracle Network is a program raising money for neonatal care units to help premature babies needing extensive care in the early few months of their lives. The Parent Prom will raise funds for the Sacred Heart Medical Center in Eugene. Sacred Heart Medical Center delivers medical care to young patients by providing them with the best equipment and technology. Approximately 75 babies a year are transported to Sacred Heart’s NICU from referral hospitals in a five county area. To learn more, please visit childrensmiraclenetworkhospitals.org.
The Old Mill Center for Children and Families provides local services to address the educational, social, emotional, and family needs of a diverse population of children. Their unique range of services allows them to provide both individual and group support to at-risk children and their families. Learn more at www.oldmillcenter.org.
The Jackson Street Youth Shelter serves homeless, runaway, and other youth in crisis and is located in downtown Corvallis near the public library. The shelter can serve up to 12 youth each night and serves youth 10 to 17. Kids can stay for one night, or many months at a time depending on their needs. All residents are encouraged to take an active role in resolving their own problems and are connected to the resources they need to do so. For more information, visit www.jsysi.org/.
Admission to the Parent Prom is $30/person, $50/couple. You can get more information or advance tickets by contacting Bryce Johnson at 541-231-4533.
