William Floyd High School will be hosting its senior prom on Friday, June 7 at Villa Lombardi’s in Holbrook with the theme “A Night of 1,000 Lights.” Thanks to the generosity of the William Floyd school community in the prom gown giveaway, many students will be able to attend in style. This annual event, designed to recycle and re-use gently-used clothing and provide students with a more cost-effective way to attend the prom, was organized by the high school three west office team (assistant principals Robert Felicetta and Brian Kennedy).
In total, the school community donated 61 gowns/dresses, six suits, six tuxedo rentals, 12 pairs of dress shoes, nine gift certificates for local salons, six men’s haircuts, 10 prom tickets and approximately $300 worth of jewelry, which was displayed for the choosing on racks created by the high school’s Building Trades & Construction Academy earlier this spring.
