DATE: Sunday, May 20, 2018
PRICE: $25 per person pre-registration; $30 per person at the door.

WHERE: Multnomah Arts Center, 7688 SW Capital Highway in Portland
WHO: The Homeschool Prom is for homeschoolers 14 years old through high school age. Dates are not required. If you do bring a date, your date does not have to be a homeschooler (but still at least 14 years old). One person in a “couple” needs to be a homeschooler. Bring your friend, or a date, and have the night of your life surrounded by homeschoolers throughout Oregon & southern Washington. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. You can email OHEN at email@example.com
Note: OHEN considers the “homeschool” community to include traditional homeschoolers, part-time homeschoolers, unschoolers, virtual charter school attendees, and any other type of learner whose education is primarily home-based. In other words, if you consider yourself a homeschooler, we consider you a homeschooler.
MUSIC: A variety of dance music will be provided by DJ Zeke! (All music will be profanity-free.)
DRESS: To make this a truly special occasion, dress is formal. (No jeans, t-shirts, or tennis shoes)
HINTS: You don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars on a prom dress or a new suit. Here are a few ideas:

- Check out Goodwill and other thrift stores
- Make your own dress

- For a free prom dress check out Abby’s Closet at www.abbyscloset.org (They collect used prom dresses and give them to those in need at a special event)
PHOTOGRAPHY: There will be a memorable backdrop for you and your date/friends to pose in front of and take pictures with your devices.
