Algonquin PTO thanks community for post prom party support


NorthboroughNORTHBOROUGH/SOUTHBOROUGH – The Algonquin Regional High School PTO recently thanked community members who donated to its 2022 Post Prom Fundraiser. 

Held on May 1 for the Class of 2023 and on May 21 for the Class of 2022, the Post Prom parties were fully funded at the New England Sports Center in Marlborough, featuring music, food, activities and ice skating.

“The annual post prom party is designed to discourage drinking and driving by providing a safe and fun alternative to unsupervised parties on prom night,” organizers noted in a thank you letter. “These events would not have been possible without the support of our community.”

The PTO fundraised for the parties through the contributions of 63 businesses and organizations and 330 individuals across four fundraiser events.
