2023 Rotary Post Prom Press Release

Post Prom 2023 set for May 20 at the Racine County Fairgrounds

Racine Founder’s Rotary Club will continue its 70-year tradition of providing a safe celebration for graduating seniors with Post Prom 2023  “Met in the Mediterranean,” presented by Educator’s Credit Union, on Saturday, May 20 from 6 p.m. – 1:00 a.m. at the Racine County Fairgrounds. The theme for this formal indoor/outdoor gala-style event, was chosen by the senior representatives from the nine participating schools (Case, Horlick, Lutheran, Park, Prairie, R.E.A.L, St. Catherine’s, Union Grove and Walden III high schools).

“This is our third year the club will present Post Prom at the fairgrounds,” Rotary president Laura DeGroot said. “The kids really seemed to like it there, so we decided to return for another year to celebrate the graduates.”
