HICKORY — Tickets may now be purchased for the Second Chance Prom, sponsored by the Hickory Public Schools Education Foundation Inc. Tickets are $35 for one person, $60 for two (includes hors d’oeuvres, drink, dance and good times).

The HPS Education Foundation is putting together the Second Chance Prom for ages 21 and older to raise funds for the district while celebrating the foundation’s support of Hickory Public Schools.

The event will be held from 8-11 p.m. Saturday, April 28, in the showroom at Mike Johnson’s Hickory Toyota on U.S. 70, SE.

Dress for men can range from vintage prom attire to Sunday best. Women are invited to wear a prom dress or to pull together a retro or contemporary style that reflects any decade of choice.

Cars will be moved out of the showroom space to make room for a dance floor, the DJ, stations with hors d’oeuvres donated from area restaurants/caterers, as well as stations set up with adult/regular drinks.

This will be a fun night to visit with Hickory area alumni and folks from communities across the county and beyond.

WHKY radio host Hal Row recently interviewed HPS Foundation president (and parent), William Pleasant, vice president (and parent), Sally Wohlbruck, and executive director Sandi Fotheringham. Check out the interview at
