Grab your diamonds and bow tie and head to “Hollywood Nights” the theme for the third annual Re-Prom presented by Young Professionals of Jasper County. Doors will open a 7 p.m. April 1 at the Iowa Speedway Newton Club to a decked out hall giving prom-goers the Hollywood vibe.

“Last year we decided to open up our Facebook page to a vote for the theme and with much success, decided to do it again this year,” organizer KayLea Marchant said. “The theme ‘Hollywood Nights’ came in as unanimous winner.”

The group once again worked closely with its partners at the Newton Hy-Vee and the Newton Area Chamber of Commerce to not only sell tickets but Hy-Vee is once again creating a new two for $30 menu for the evening, as well.

AmericInn Lodge and Suites is also partnering again in 2017, saving a block of rooms under the Re-Prom name. Marchant said guests can call and use Re-Prom to reserve a room.

Tickets are available for $20 through Saturday with the price increasing to $35 until March 31. They are available at the chamber of commerce office, 113 First Ave. W., Hy-Vee, 1501 First Ave. E. or online at https://tikly.co/events/1822. Tickets at the door will be $30. 

“Last year we not only saw more guests in general, but we also had many guests who made the trip from out of town, just for Re-Prom. That is something thing that made us really proud,” Marchant said. “We took the opportunity to change up a few things to help make the 2016 event even better and we’re excited to see how these new steps can do for us in 2017.”
