Help Us Send Students in Need to the Prom Feb 19, 2020 prom project

The prom is a special event for students where they make memories that last a lifetime. However, for some of our students, the cost of prom is simply too much.

The Butler Senior High School Random Acts of Kindness Club members would like to make sure their peers don't miss out on these memories simply because of the expense. Therefore, the club is planning to send two Butler seniors to the prom, all expenses paid.  Last year we were able to help several students to prom through the generous donations of various local businesses.
