This free outer space themed prom will give all Detroit Public School seniors an opportunity to have the graduating senior class experience despite their economic condition. Aware that many seniors have to forgo certain school activities because of finances, Freeman and Johnson wanted to be sure that this, did not include the prom.
The donation of prom dresses and suits have eliminated much of the burden that comes along with this special day. “With so many challenges that our students face daily, worrying about how they are going to celebrate their academic achievements should not be one of them”, says Rahijaa. “It’s important to Rahijaa and I that the students know that someone cares for you and we are rooting for you whether you know us or not”, added Jason.
The Detroit Galaxy Gala will be held at:
Bob’s Classic Kicks
June 11th 2010 from 7pm to 9pm
4717 Woodward Avenue Detroit, MI 48201
