    Senior All Night Party Info

    The Senior all night party committee needs your help! It’s time to start planning this year’s Senior All Night Party! We’ve got a lot to do!

    The Senior All Night Party has become a wonderful tradition (35+ years) given by the parents/guardians of seniors on the evening of their graduation ceremony. The party provides your graduate a safe, fun-filled, memorable finale to their high school days.

    Typically, the party includes activities such as a casino, hypnotist, caricaturist, photo booth, volleyball, music, bingo, food, prizes and so much more.

    This is a big event and takes a whole year to plan and lots of hands to make it happen. We need as many volunteers as soon as possible to kick start our fundraising and donation efforts.
