Students prep for prom

New program aids after-prom

CLINTON — Area students will trade the typical jeans and T-shirt this weekend for something a little more formal.

Clinton, Camanche, Prince of Peace and Fulton, Ill., high schools will celebrate prom today, and many of the boys have chosen a tuxedo to wear to the formal event. A downtown men's wear store is taking money earned for those tuxes, and giving some of it back to those same students.

Boegel's Men's Wear initiated a new program this year for its annual donation to after-prom activities, where students from the four previously-named high schools participate in food, games and events after the dance concludes.

For every tux sold, Boegel's is donating $1 to after-prom activities. By Friday, Boegel's had generated $214.

Co-owner Bobbi Boegel said the apparel store has increased its tux sales again this year.

"This is something we wanted to do," Boegel said. "It's about giving back to the community and showing people that we appreciate their business."

A part of giving back to the community came in the form of encouraging students to stay in the Gateway area and shop.

"The kids have been nice and polite, and they all say thank you," Boegel said.

Students from area schools eat before the dance at each school. Dances last for the majority of tonight, giving way to the after-prom festivities at Clinton High School.

The after-prom event will be from 11 p.m. to 4 a.m. at the Clinton High School commons and theater area. Students pay $2 at the door, and can participate in casino games and other activities, with prizes offered at the end of the night. A hypnotist also will be perform during the event.
