Long Beach Fashion Show Hopes to Fund Alcohol-Free Post-Prom Party.
Story by Rosemary Leonetti
After more than 20 years of hosting it’s annual alcohol-free Morning Madness Post-Prom event, the Long Beach High School PTSA is facing hard times.
Every year, through a series of fundraising events, the PTSA pays for every high school senior to attend this all-night post-prom party, giving away a brand new car and other prizes. But in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy they were not able to hold two of their biggest fundraisers. So now they are counting on the proceeds from their annual Morning Madness Fashion Show to raise enough to give this year’s graduating class, who has already faced such adversity this year, a morning of madness to remember.
Since so many students were displaced by the storm, the PTSA was worried that attendance at the annual fashion show might be down, but a record number of seniors signed up to strut their stuff in the name of Morning Madness. Bolstered by the senior’s enthusiasm, the PTSA is hoping to bring in a record number of fashion show attendees to support this special cause.
The fashion show and dinner are scheduled to start at 7 p.m. at Long Beach High School, at 322 Lagoon Drive West, at March 6.
