Overwhelmed by generosity

To the Editor:

Each year, the Johnsburg High School Post Prom Committee, made up of parents, raises thousands of dollars to provide a structured after-prom event for our students and their guests at no additional cost. We could not do this without the tremendous
support of the businesses in the area.

Local businesses in both McHenry and Johnsburg have been incredibly generous in
donating goods and services to help us reach our goal. We especially would like to thank our sponsors – Gipper Formal Wear, Black Orchid Boutique, Kathryn's Bridal and Mar-Ray Dance Studio – for helping us with our main fundraisers: The Prom/Post Prom Fashion Show and our Zumbathon. In addition, many thanks to the Johnsburg Lions Club for yet again sponsoring a meat raffle for us.

Thank you to everyone who has come out to participate in our events. Thank you to all of businesses in the area for your support. The list is long and we are overwhelmed by your generosity.

Meg Redshaw

Chairwoman, Post Prom Committee, Johnsburg
