NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - The New Providence High School seniors were dressed to the nines last night at the annual PTSA fundraiser, the Prom Fashion Show and Tricky Tray. The theme was Hollywood's Red Carpet, so the stage was decked out with VIP posters, old film cameras, and Oscar Awards as well. Many people also won fabulous prizes from the Tricky Tray in the cafeteria. It was surely a glamorous night that the seniors won't forget.

The fundraiser kicked off with the Tricky Tray before the show. The cafeteria was decorated with a red carpet and signs sparkling around the room. Appetizers and refreshments were available for guests to snack on while Club Souren provided music and DJ. Tables were lined with 111 baskets that were donated by generous businesses and families in town. The most popular baskets were the "NY State of Mind Basket" to see Billy Joel in concert, the "Let's Go Giants" basket to see a Giants game, the "Apple of My I" basket with an iPad mini inside, Mets tickets, the "Prep for Prom" basket, the Samsung Led TV, driving lessons, the 50/50 and every parent's favorite, ACT or SAT prep classes as well. These were just a few of the gifts generously donated from New Providence families and businesses.

Finally, at 7 p.m., the modeling began with Walter Kempner and Joanne Trimble, both teachers at New Providence High School, as the masters of the ceremony, announcing each couple as they made their entrance. All of the gowns the girls were wearing were donated by David's Bridal, Lord & Taylor, and Macy's and the tuxedos were donated by Adam's Menswear right in New Providence. The girls were wearing all of the newest prom styles such as the two piece dress, the high low look, mermaid style, and other attractive cuts in various colors. The ladies also got their hair done at Creations, Feathers Hair Specialists, or Hair Solon Body and Soul all in New Providence. Every couple looked stunning on stage.

As each couple was announced, the hosts were able to share a little bit about each of the seniors that came onto the stage. They explained where each student saw themselves in 20 years, what they were wearing, their advice to the freshmen, what they've accomplished in High School, and even where they are attending college in the fall. During the show, there was a video of the seniors showing pictures of them when they were little to how they look now. When the show concluded, many went home with a basket or two and had a wonderful night they wouldn't forget.

This entire production was made possible by the PTSA. The Prom Fashion Show is the only fundraiser for the PTSA. Without the brains behind the scenes making the show happen like the chair of the fundraiser, Kate Forbes, along with her many volunteers helping to dress the models, organize the baskets, and do ticket sale, the show wouldn't have had the success it did.

Politics IS Government in Union County
