On April 26, 2014, just over 270 women gathered at The Saratoga Hilton for the 2nd Annual Saratoga Mom Prom to help raise funds for the Saratoga County Children’s Committee (founders of the Empty Stocking Program). This ladies only evening was highlighted by beautiful as well as many purposefully tacky prom gowns and bridesmaid dresses, often from the prom era of the ladies who ranged in ages from 21-80! Everyone danced the night away with their friends and family to the sounds of DJ Joe Goode of “Complete”, Albany. We offered a dance contest, found our tackiest dress winner and yes, crowned a 2014 Prom Queen, Kelly Slywka! The wonderful evening of reliving or rewriting past prom experiences also included the Saratoga Photo Booth, Mary Shimp (an amazing Tarot Card reader) as well as Bridget McDonald, our amazing photographer.
Thanks to the amazing generosity of our community and attendees, we are able to make a donation of $10,000 to the Saratoga County Children’s Committee to enable them to continue to help area children in need, with an additional $2,000 for website development.
