Each year high school students have plenty of built up anxiety about what prom night will bring. Prom night should be a night of fun and excitement but far to often it turns into tragedy when a teen decides to drink and drive, all for one night of fun.
The Calvert Alliance Against Substance Abuse Inc’s is on a mission to promote a happy healthy prom night for all through Project Graduation. On February 21st at 8:00PM the fourth annual Comedy Invasion will be held at Huntington High School to help raise money for a safe and fun graduation celebration for all. The show will feature comedians Gary Valentine and Erin Jackson. Valentine is known for his role on the TV show “The King Of Queens” and the films, “ I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry”, Mall Cops and “Stuck on You”. Jackson is best known for his appearances on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and “Live at Gothan”,
The hopes and purpose of the event are to raise $20,000 through sponsors and the general public who would like to enjoy a simple night out. All of the money that is raised will go towards alcohol and drug free celebrations for this years high school seniors. Whatever money is not raised during this event the students will have to provide or raise on their own.
Those who do purchase tickets can look forward to a lovely evening. There will be a caricature artist and a jazz band before the show and of course the above mentioned comedians will take the stage for the main event. There will not be any alcoholic beverages served because the whole point is to prove that you can have a good wholesome time without the use of alcohol. However, there will be refreshments of the non alcoholic variety served! It's all about avoiding temptation and alcohol is the No. 1 drug of choice for those under the age of 21 in our community.
Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 at the door and $15 for all CAASA members.
