All sales are final and are non-refundable.

Dance the night away at

Meritan’s Senior Citizen Prom!

Meritan’s Senior Citizen Prom is both a fundraiser and a celebration. Designed for those age 55 and older, this is an opportunity to don your finest threads, let your hair down, tear up the dance floor, and support Meritan’s programs and services while you’re at it.

This year, the event will be “A Red Carpet Affair” replete with music, dancing, dinner, a photographer, and more. At Meritan, we know that our donors and supporters are the biggest stars around, and we can’t wait for you to join us on the red carpet.

If you are attending, you will also have the chance to become our Senior Citizen Prom King or Queen. When buying your ticket, choose to either set up a fundraising page for yourself or have us set it up for you. Share the page with your friends and family, and the nominees who raise the most money through their pages will be named King and Queen!

If you’re interested in helping to sponsor the event, email Chessie Biggam at chessiebiggam@meritan.org for more information on how you can help!
