For 18-years the Claremore High School Grad Bash has been aiming to keep kids safe on graduation night. Theirs is a cause Claremore Police Department is happy to get behind.

As in past years, CPD presented a check for $500 to put towards the event.

Chief Stan Brown said the event serves two purposes—to give students a memorable night to look back on, and to give them a safe environment to do it.

Now in its 19th year, Grad Bash is an event which enables graduating seniors the chance to have one last get-together with their classmates in a safe environment.

“Basically, Grad Bash is a lock-in for our high school seniors — from 11 a.m. graduation night to 5:30 a.m. the following morning — at which we provide food, entertainment, and prizes throughout the night to give our students a fun, safe alternative way to celebrate graduating high school,” said Todd. “Grad Bash tickets are $25 a student which includes the cost to attend as well as food, activities, live entertainment, including a hypnotist, and a prize — each student will get a prize of at least a $25 value, many of them, even more valuable, like a computer, printer, dorm frig, etc. It’s a great night.”
