LAVC is partnering with the local food pantry in August and September as a way for us to bless those in need in our community! On Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12-3 PM, we need 3 volunteers from LAVC to join some of their "seasoned volunteers" to help run the food pantry.

Volunteers should be able to lift 20+ lbs, should wear clothes they don't mind getting dirty, and wear comfy shoes.
The Becker County Food Pantry is located in the big brown building near the fairgrounds. The address is listed on the "Location" of this event.

The tasks our church volunteers will help with are things like keeping the shelves stocked, sorting through egg cartons and removing cracked eggs, pushing shopping carts, etc. When you arrive at the food pantry, ask the front desk for Brad and he will assign you a job for that day! :)

We are collecting donated dresses, tuxedos, shoes, and accessories at the Becker County DAC. Feel free to stop by on weekdays from 9am-2pm to try things on and take things home.
***On March 30, all donations will be brought to Lakes Area Vineyard Church. You can come and “shop” from 10am-1pm. We may also have some tailors available to alter clothing as needed.
If these options don't work, just come to prom looking your best with what you have! We are just so excited for you to spend the evening with us!

The night of the event, should the Honored Guests come dressed in their tuxedo/suit or dress?
Yes, please come dressed for the occasion. We will have hair and make-up stations available if you would like your hair or make-up done. We will also provide a corsage or boutonniere for each Honored Guest.

Dates to the prom:
No dates please. This is a fun-filled night where each Honored Guest will be partnered with a Host for the evening. Guys will be partnered with guys and gals will be partnered with gals. We will partner everyone onsite as you check in. Our Hosts look forward to being a friend to you and treating you like a star for the night!

Times the Honored Guests should arrive and depart:
Check-in starts at 6 PM. The “prom experience” goes from 6-9PM. The first part of the evening is spent getting paired with your Host and going through the stations (hair, make-up, flowers, photo, carnival games, limo, food/dessert.) The last hour is a big dance party in the auditorium! You will be responsible to arrange transportation to and from the prom.

Food and Beverages:
A variety of pizzas and mini cupcakes will be served for dinner. Blenders will be available to puree if needed. Popcorn will be served as a snack. Water, pop, lemonade, and coffee are the beverages that will be available. Please make note on your RSVP if you have further dietary restrictions/needs you’d like us to know of.

Can parents, families, and/or para-professionals attend the evening with the Honored Guests?
We welcome family, friends, and para-professionals to be a part of the evening by joining our “paparazzi” team to cheer on our Honored Guests as they make their way down the Red Carpet after their limo or party bus ride. We do, however, want to allow our guests to spend their evening with their host and engage with other guests attending the prom. If an Honored Guest requires constant monitoring, exceptions will be made. We want the experience to be fun and safe for everyone.
If you would like to join the “paparazzi” team please fill out this form: https://bit.ly/2EjRtSU
