Fun Event & Activity Ideas

Poor ManÕs Prom (aka Thrift Store Formal)

Decorate your sanctuary or meeting center as if it were a high school prom. Have all participants, including the chaperones, dressed entirely in attire purchased at local thrift stores.

Make sure you book a killer DJ for this event. Everybody likes tunes!

During the ÔpromÕ, hold a fashion show and photograph “Ball Moments” by a professional (or amateur) photographer.
