RoseLetter from Sycamore High School re support from MWC for Prom, May 13th 2017.


Montgomery Woman’s Club -


On behalf of the Sycamore High School’s After Prom Committee, I would like to thank the Montgomery Woman’s Club for the generous donation of $500 dollars.   The “Mischief Managed” After Prom was just little over a week ago from 12- 4am (definitely into the early morning hours J).    The night was a tremendous success in providing a safe and substance-free way for our high school students to celebrate in style!  We had over 500 students in attendance.   I have included some pictures from the festivities below.  It truly was a very fun and memorable evening for all.    

  Besides the advertising display at the event, your sponsorship will be recognized in an upcoming thank-you ad in the Northeast Suburban Press.  


  Our combined efforts really made a difference for many teens!   Thank you again for your generous community support.
