The Roanoke Area Youth Substance Abuse Coalition (RAYSAC) sponsors the After Prom Grand Finale (APGF) as an extra incentive for students to attend and stay until the end of their school’s after-prom party. In the past 29 years, NONE of the participating schools have experienced the tragedy of a drunk-driving accident on the night of their prom. Last year, 4,833 students from 36 high schools across Southwest Virginia stayed until the end of their school’s after-prom party. That is 4,833 youth who made it home safely to their families after one of the biggest nights of their young lives.

This year’s 30th anniversary of the After Prom Grand Finale will be our largest and most elaborate event to date!  It will take place Sunday, June 3, 2018, at Elmwood Park in downtown Roanoke.  One lucky high school Junior or Senior will win a brand new 2018 Subaru Impreza donated by First Team Auto. Many others will win valuable door prizes.

The After Prom Grand Finale will also include a pet adoption event, outdoor recreation organizations, food trucks and local entertainment. RAYSAC wants this year’s APGF and the ample outdoor space at Elmwood Park in downtown Roanoke to showcase Roanoke as the outdoor destination it is and encourage our participants to engage in healthy drug-free activities!

APGF “Stay Until the End” Award

It is extremely important for schools, parents and the community to support after-prom parties for their students as they are a proven way to keep teens safe on prom night.  Working toward that goal, we want to saturate community members, parents and teens with reasons why students should attend and stay until the end of their school’s after-prom party!  We are excited to announce that RAYSAC has once again partnered with First Team Auto, WFXR TV and The K92 Mornin’ Thang to produce this event.

There is no registration fee.  As an added incentive for registering for After Prom Grand Finale, we will offer a $250 cash prize to two schools who register between February 5th and March 16th.  The names of the two schools will be drawn and announced on Monday, March 19th.

Please contact Becky Parr at (540) 982-1427 ext. 185 or with any questions or if you did not receive a registration packet in the mail.
