Prom organizers were greeted with cheers and applause from the Los Alamos High School’s senior class Wednesday as the high school’s junior class, the class that’s sponsoring the prom, filled them in on their plans to host their plans at Buffalo Thunder Resort.
The ticket prices will be $50, which includes a three-course meal and the dance. The minimum financial commitment is $6,000, which equals a minimum of 120 participants.
According to Lisa Montoya, chief financial officer for Los Alamos Public Schools, Buffalo Thunder has committed to a maximum of 500 prom attendees. Historically, average prom attendance has been between 320 to 370 persons, according to administration officials.
Prom organizers have until March 1 to meet the minimum financial requirement to reserve the venue. According to the school administration, the students have been busy raising the funds needed to make their plan work.
Reports are the school’s annual ’Topper Revue has been very successful.
For those interested in attending, performances are 7 p.m. today and 2 p.m. Monday.
Also, Buffalo Thunder Resort Event Organizer Peter Lovato has offered prom organizers the use of its shuttles to and from the prom.
