The After Prom Grand Finale is an event that takes place at the end of the school year celebrating juniors and seniors who make the safe choice to stay until the end of their school’s after-prom party. Students who attend the After Prom Grand Finale get the chance to win the Grand Prize- a car donated by First Team Auto in Roanoke!
For years, the After Prom Grand Finale was supported and run by the Roanoke Area Youth Substance Abuse Coalition (RAYSAC). However, this year, YOVASO’s Advisory Board took over the event. Had it not been for a generous private donor, the Board would not have been able to take on the event. The donation covered website maintenance, material cost, and compensation for the event coordinator, who handled all aspects of organizing the After Prom Grand Finale.
At this point in time, there are not enough funds to produce the After Prom Grand Finale for 2020. So, the event coordinator is working hard to get grants and donations to make it possible. Recently, she applied for a $25,000 grant with State Farm and is now a finalist for public voting! The money from this grant will cover operational costs for the After Prom Grand Finale in Southwest Virginia, but it will also allow the event to be expanded to Central Virginia!
Help the YOVASO Advisory Board receive this grant by voting at www.AfterPromGrandFinale.org
Vote up to 10 times a day between August 14-August 23
