On behalf of the Grandview Heights High School PTO After Prom Party Committee, we would like to thank everyone who helped make this year's "All Aboard" After Prom Party a huge success.

This event is coordinated by GHHS PTO with help from school groups and local businesses. The objective is to provide students with a safe, affordable alternative to potentially unsafe after-hour activities.

Our major sponsors included Arlington Bank, Members First Credit Union, Gardener Allen DeRoberts Insurance and individual family donations. In addition, the Bobcat Boosters, GHHS Alumni, Touchdown Club, Stevenson and Middle School PTO provided funds, along with major underwriting by the GHHS PTO. This was also the first year the event received a grant from AAA of Ohio.

Thanks to the generosity of many local businesses, we had enough donations for each of the 170 students attending to receive a door prize. Caribou Coffee sponsored our coffee house. White Castle provided generous donations of food. White Castle, along with Tim Horton's and Panera, gave coupons for free food and drinks for each of our attendees.

Big thanks also to Chipotle, Grandad's Pizza, Subway, Jeni's Ice Cream, Fifth/Third Bank, CS Bank, Apple Computer, Wind Over Water Sailing School, Arena Grand Theater, Qdoba, King5, Stauf's, Dairy Queen, Ha!r, Wendy's, Dewey's Pizza, French Loaf, Cane's Chicken, Sonic, Kroger, Grandview Theater, Avola Lanza, Chocolate Café and American Eagle.

Special thanks to Jesse Truitt, Kevin Richards, Steve Hall and local Young Life leaders who served as event chaperones.

Finally, thanks to the Grandview parents who helped with chaperoning, food, drinks, activities and donations. You helped make this year's After Prom an event our students will always remember, and make Grandview the kind of place our kids are fortunate enough to live in.
