Moms Do Prom

The 3rd annual Mom Prom benefits Camp Abilities Saratoga

Saratoga Mom Prom
(Cathleen Duffy)

For some of us, the high school prom is a memory marred by a bad date, bad hair or bad formal wear—something we’d prefer the keep in the distant past. Others of us would jump at the chance to relieve the prom again—at least on our own terms.

The Saratoga Mom Prom, now in its third year, is an opportunity to do just that. It’s a dance and ladies’ night out for charity on April 18 benefitting Camp Abilities Saratoga, a one-week summer sports camp for kids who are blind or visually impaired.

Women wear their old prom gowns, bridesmaid dresses or wedding gowns, and can compete in a “tackiest dress contest” or for the night’s grand prize of prom queen. It’s a chance to get crazy on the dance floor, reclaim bad fashion choices from the past and feel shame-free while doing so—all for a good cause.

This year’s Saratoga Mom Prom takes place at the Holiday Inn from 7 to 11 p.m. Tickets are $55 per person or $550 for a reserved table that includes admission for 10.
