Prom set to offer a do-over

The Lebanon High School Band Boosters are again offering a do-over on prom.

Now in it’s fourth year, Second Chance Prom is set for Saturday night from 7 until 11 p.m. at Baird Chapel at Cumberland University as a major fundraiser for the Lebanon High School Marching Blue Devils.

The laid-back night is meant to offer the opportunity for those who attend to do prom all over again, either reliving their glory days or rewriting history that might have gone horribly wrong, all while raising money for the Lebanon High School band.

A variety of hors d’oeuvres will be served, and a cash bar will also be provided with water, Coke selections, beer, wine and mixed drinks.

A DJ will provide music and spin everyone’s favorite dance tunes all night.

There will also be a silent auction throughout the evening.

As far as dress, those attending are welcome to come dressed in their finest prom attire, but there are no rules, so business or casual attire is also accepted.

A professional photographer will also be on hand to take and print pictures throughout the evening. 

Three couples will be vying for the title of prom king and queen this year, with the winners determined by how much money they raise in their campaign. This year’s candidates for prom king and queen include LeeAnn Fry and Chad Sullivan, Shelly Lanius and David Brown and Shawn Smith and Lindsay Beard. Each couple will seek votes and each vote costs $1. The couple with the most votes, a.k.a. donations, wins the coveted title. 

Past winners have included Helene and Rob Cash and Perry and Andrea Wilke, and Natalyn and Perry Slaughter took the crown last year. 

Tickets to the event are $25 per person, or $40 per couple. A table of eight can be reserved for $150. Tickets can be purchased at the Lebanon-Wilson County Chamber of Commerce, the Beauty Boutique, marchingbluedevils.com, or by calling Jennifer at 615-218-0867.

Sponsorship opportunities for Second Chance Prom are also available. 

A $300 donation will make the donor a title sponsor and comes with eight tickets. A title sponsor will get their business logo on top of the prom advertising poster and their name will be announced at the event. A $150 donation will make the donor an auction sponsor and comes with four tickets. These donors will have their logos on the bottom of the advertising poster and on each bid sheet at the silent auction. A $100 donation gets the donor two tickets and their name on the bottom of the poster, as well.

All proceeds from the night’s event are donated to the award-winning Lebanon band, which is looking to get a new picture on the side of their 48’ trailer that carries instruments and equipment for each show.
