Why a book?

Why do you need a book just to throw a party?

Your After Prom party is a major EVENT. This is not a neighborhood Bar-B-Que or friends getting together for a relaxing evening. Arranging a party - and staging an event where you will have legal, financial, security and liability concerns are two completely different things. Your After Prom Party will require significant demands, forethought and intense planning that most people have never needed to consider.

Typically we get wrapped up in the food and entertainment aspects of throwing a party for friends. With an event such as an After Prom party, those are secondary concerns. That is why we have taken the time to develop effective guidelines and procedures and include everything from example solicitation letters (that you can download and customize), party theme ideas, instructions on what to do, how to do it, where to go for help and how to finance and insure your event.

In addition, the world is a different place today after the tragic events of 9/11. There are new laws and requirements that must be acknowledged that relate to everything from fundraising to liability issues. As an example, there is now the government sponsored "Do Not Call" program that can affect how you proceed when you solicit funds and gift donations.

You cannot hope to stage a successful After Prom party without proper planning and knowledge. This is why our book was created - to help you plan, promote, finance and stage a FUN, After Prom event that meets everyone's expectations - from the kids to the parents, police and school officials.
