This Chicago-area prom preview is in its second year and chaired by Special Occasions on the Avenue owner, Mary Marconi-Popiel. A committee of downtown Batavia business owners plans and presents Prom-O-Rama and works together to showcase all the businesses that cater to those planning for Prom 2011.
Prom-O-Rama includes live music, a prom business expo, style show and creative dance. The doors open at 3 p.m. and a reserved ticket is required to enter as space is limited. A limited number of tickets are available at Invitations Etc., Simonetti Studios, Special Occasions on the Avenue and Urban Style. Additionally, a raffle and silent auction of items donated by participating businesses benefits Suicide Prevention Services at the event.
"Prom-O-Rama is a wonderful example of downtown businesses working together to create a unique event that showcases their businesses and bring people to downtown Batavia," said Bitta McKenna, Batavia MainStreet executive director. Marconi-Popiel adds, "I think this will turn out to be a very special event for high school girls and their moms. Join us and allow us to make every girl feel beautiful for an unforgettable evening that she will cherish forever."
