“You get a very nice view of New York City,” stated the adviser. She also added that the restaurant hall itself is in a very scenic environment.

Many fundraisers such as Gertrude Hawk Chocolate, Mixed Bag Designs, a Halloween basket raffle, school tournaments and a poinsettia sale are planned for this year. This past September, a Chipotle fundraising event has already raised approximately $400. The goal is to collect up to ten to fifteen thousand dollars, which will reduce each prom bid by ten to twenty dollars.

The prom adviser wants the committee to raise as much money as possible so they can pay for decorations and invites. With the prom bids starting at 100 dollars, she would like to bring that number down like last year’s class did.

Ms. O’Driscoll has been the adviser of the prom committee for five years. The reason for her returning year after year is because she loves being a part of such a big event. Her favorite aspect is picking a theme and decorating the hall.
