High school seniors can look forward to eight hours of celebration the evening of their senior ball thanks to the Baker High School PTSA, which is organizing an after ball party for the students and their guests.
"This celebration, affectionately named Keep the Ball Rolling (KBR), is being organized by parents, school leaders and community members to provide an exciting, fun-filled, but safe celebration for Baker High School seniors," said Lorraine Zahn, who handles public relations for the event. Last year's inaugural event drew nearly 500 attendees.
The senior ball will be held Friday May 27 at the University Sheraton from 8 p.m. to midnight. The KBR celebration begins at midnight in the high school cafeteria.
"All Baker seniors are invited to attend, even if they do not attend the Ball," Zahn said. "Food, music, dancing, and other activities, as requested by seniors, will be provided."
Admission to the KBR celebration is included in the price of the senior ball ticket. Those not attending the ball can purchase a ticket for $5. Food, music, dancing and other activities will be provided until 4 a.m. when the event ends.
"Prizes will be drawn all night," Zahn said.
Burdick Automotive BMW, Ford, Lexus, and Toyota-Scion has donated the grand prize, a certified used vehicle, which includes sales tax, registration fees and a limited power-train warranty.
The PTSA is still in need of food and prize donations for the event, as well as volunteers.
"Several businesses, community organizations, and individuals have already contributed to make this a truly memorable night for Baker seniors," Zahn said. "However, we are still in need of food and prize donations, along with volunteers the night of the event."
