Help for East High School Post Prom

    Prom night. That time you may have finally worked up the courage to ask out your crush. That time you may have had your first dance with your high school sweetheart, whom you ended up marrying.  That time you gathered with your friends, got dressed up looking red carpet ready and celebrated your years together by dancing the night away. That rite of passage where you leave your high school days behind you and set off for graduation. That time you will never forget.

    East High School's Post Prom keeps the unforgettable night going by offering up a safe place for students to continue celebrating and making memories. Post prom establishes a safe environment for students to participate in fun, supervised activities at no cost to them. To help make this a wonderful experience for the kids, this year's post prom would like to include a hypnotist, lazer tag and carnival style games where the kids can win prizes. 

    Our friends at East High have let us know that they are always in need of community support for this event.  If you are interested in helping out please reach out.  

  • Cash donations!  Make your tax-deductible donation to GESD via Paypal here                  Or you can write a check to Greater East Side Development with post prom in the memo mailed to PO Box 3185 Des Moines, IA 50316. We will give 100% of your donation to post prom. Checks can also be made out to Scarlet Pride Inc with postprom donation written in the memo.  They can be dropped off to the school, mailed to us, or mailed to Lacey Anderson at East High School 815 E 13th St Des Moines, IA 50316.

  • Food donations- With all the fun going on, these kids are sure to work up an appetite. Food will be available on-site for the students free of charge so they do not have to leave the festivities to go get something to eat.

  • Prize donations-  Examples are anywhere from giftcards, dorm fridge, laptop, tablet, salon services to televisions! Anything helps! Prizes with a higher value are given out later in the night encouraging the students to stay longer.  If you are thinking that what you have is too small to donate, think again!  Gift baskets will be put together and what you have might just be the cherry on top!

  • Themed decorations-  Have some of decorations lying around taking up space somewhere?  We'll take it off your hands and put it to good use!  Are you a creative genius that can create something to go along with this years theme or is decorating fabulous events a passion of yours and you would love to help set up?  Let's talk! 515.745.6312
