PROM THEME: REVEALED! It’s going to be a great one this year. If you’re subscribed to our email listserv, you got this this morning. If not, now you know, and why not send an email to info at 826chi dot org for biweekly updates about volunteer opportunities and 826CHI news? Tell everyone you know that prom is an utter delight, and join us for beer, dancing, prizes AND MORE on Saturday, March 5th.

826CHI’s annual PROMME fundraiser will beSATURDAY MARCH 5th at 8PM at the historic (and easily accessible via portkey or the Tube) Pulaski Park Fieldhouse!
  John Donne once wrote, “No man is an island.” He went on to clarify, “But, duh, if he were, he’d wanna be England, ‘cause it’s tops. Zig-a-zig-ah.”  As such, the theme of this year’s promme is in honour of that smashing island nation that gave the world everything from knights who say “Ni” to a knight who sings about “Crocodile Rock” and all the Knightley’s in between. 
 The dress for the British invasion of PROMME is second hand formal and/or dress as a person, landmark or thing from jolly old England. 
Your Promme ticket includes refillable pints of the choicest brews from Haymarket pub, potato crisps and other snacks, a performance by Rod Stewart (impersonator extraordinaire Steve Bobbitt), silent auction (for items like tickets to Bonnaroo and Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me), more music and dancing, dancing, dancing.
 Must be 21+. Tickets are £25 or $40 in advance ($50 at the door). All the proceeds go to 826CHI’s “tudor"ing and writing programmes. Get your tickets before they’re like Prince William and no longer available.
Yeeaahhhh, baby, yeah!

Are you interested in getting gussied up and having THIS MUCH FUN? Then you should join us on TONIGHT, March 5 at the Pulaski Park Fieldhouse for a night of dancing, amazing treasures and more. The theme for this year’s dance is Promme: British Invasion so dress up in secondhand formal duds or in costume as your favorite British person, place, or thing from history and get ready to get funky with us! All proceeds go to 826CHI so we can keep our programming free for all of our amazing students from all over the city.
