Funds sought for safe after-graduation bash

CLAREMORE — The Project Safe Graduation committee is currently working hard to raise money for the annual Claremore High School after graduation party on May 22. The Zebra Safe Graduation Bash is a celebration hosted by parents of graduating seniors, as well as, community businesses and organizations.

This positive alternative to traditional graduation parties has been a huge success for the past 19 years thanks to the overwhelming generosity of both parents and area supporters.

The participation of graduates has increased over the years with almost 100 percent of graduating seniors attending.

The night’s activities will include a wide variety of entertainment, such as ping pong, poker tables, inflatable games, game rooms, a hypnotist, dance lessons, music, a photo booth and more.

Prizes will be given away throughout the evening, including TVs, DVD players, cameras, dorm room supplies for college and gift cards from area merchants. Every student present will receive a prize.

The Project Safe Graduation committee is seeking donations from businesses and clubs in the area. Contributions will ensure this event is the highlight of the year for seniors, as well as, provide a safe environment for students to celebrate their achievements together.

Tax-deductible contributions can be made payable to the CHS Graduation Celebration and mailed to P.O. Box 2133-2133 Claremore, OK 74018.

Businesses, organizations or individuals interested in donating, can contact Tina Schwartz at (918) 694-3375 or Michelle Schivally at (918) 671-9276.
