SouthFest 2015 Needs Your Support

SouthFest is Newton South’s after-prom event. Though you might not have a senior this year, you will soon. We need your help to continue this tradition of safety and fun, so please keep reading! You can think of this as ‘paying it forward’ for the year when your son or daughter is a senior. Our goal is to provide a safe and fun post-prom experience for seniors with or without dates. As an alternative to house parties, we provide a senior-parent-free environment with fun, games, music and food. Hopefully, senior parents can sleep better that night! There is a police detail onsite, non-senior parent chaperones and free taxi service to anywhere in Newton. In our sixteen years of running SouthFest, there has never been a serious prom night accident or injury to a Newton South senior or date.

As part of the Newton South family, it is our job to make SouthFest happen. There are many ways to help, from volunteering to create decorations, setting up at the school the day of the event, chaperoning, cleaning up afterwards, and more. We are especially in need of funding assistance and more volunteers. We are behind in our donations and may have to eliminate parts of the event. Less event excitement means less senior participation. We don’t want that to happen!
