What's New in the Land of the Titans

We Need After Prom Gift Baskets!

We need to begin collecting baskets to give away during the After Prom!

Parents of Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors, this is for us all!

Freshman parents: This is a great way to get involved with the Einstein Community and learn all about the After Prom Program!

For newcomers to After Prom, here’s the scoop:
  • Seniors and their dates go to the Prom, which is on Friday, April 28th
  • The After Prom party is held at Einstein from midnight – 5:00 am.
  • This event is free to ALL SENIORS (regardless of whether or not they attended prom) and their prom dates.
  • The After Prom has all kinds of activities to keep the kids occupied and safe throughout the night, including food, games and door prizes.
The kids have multiple opportunities to win fantastic prizes throughout the night:
  • Many themed Gift Baskets are created, assembled and donated for giveaways throughout the night. 
  • The contents of the baskets are donated by our incredibly generous Einstein Community. 
  • We collect full baskets, empty baskets, items to be included in baskets and $$ donations for purchases to be included in the baskets. 
  • Assembled gift baskets are displayed, and kids who attend After Prom put raffle tickets in boxes for baskets they desire and the fun begins!
We are ready to start assembling these baskets for the 2017 AfterProm and we need your help!

Below is a list of ideas for basket themes that have been enjoyed in past years. 

Folks can put together baskets (or coolers or bins etc.) themselves, or with a friend or two. 
We try to collect at least 25 filled “baskets.” 

Multiple baskets of any theme are most certainly welcome and desired.  Theme ideas include:
  • Beach
  • Snack Time
  • Movie Night-In
  • Movie Night-Out
  • Spirit Wear
  • Music
  • Picnic
  • Camping
  • Travel
  • College Supplies
  • School Supplies
  • Dorm Room Girls
  • Dorm Room Boys
  • Chocoholic
  • Car Care
  • Kitchen Time
  • Sports
  • Art
  • Books
  • Gift Cards for Mall Shopping Spree
  • Gift Card for College Supplies
Please let us know if you can contribute a basket full of goodies for this effort, or individual items for baskets or raffles.

Thanks!
