Hope will offer a drive-thru breakfast prom for registered attendees on May 22.

For all of the seniors that missed the end to their final year in high school, prom is among the most missed events.

Although that is the case, Hope Breakfast Bar is holding a distanced prom for seniors. On May 22 from 7-9p.m. registered seniors will have the opportunity to participate. Seniors will get dressed up, have the option to drive in with a friend or a date, and get their picture taken on a red carpet by a staff member. Not only that, but they will receive flowers and a take home dinner, and all of the included items are free of charge.

While this event is a great way to celebrate what prom might have looked like, it’s not the same as the experience itself.

“We’re hoping that even though this is nowhere close to the real prom experience, it still offers a fun reason to dress up and go out safely during this pandemic… we mostly want to offer something to look forward to during this seemingly never-ending quarantine,” junior and employee at Hope Breakfast Bar Gracie Tilney-Kaemmer said.

Hope has been focused on giving back to the community ever since this crisis started. They have been giving out free food to people in need for weeks now and this is just an extension of that kindness and generosity in a new direction,”

This isn’t the only notion towards community building that Hope has taken. They’ve also been providing free meals to people and families in need and began this much earlier in quarantine.

“Hope has been focused on giving back to the community ever since this crisis started. They have been giving out free food to people in need for weeks now and this is just an extension of that kindness and generosity in a new direction,” said junior and employee Jack Biggs.

The drive-in prom is a creative way for seniors to still have a sense of the glamour that a real prom would have, only in much safer conditions. All of the workers (and in this case, photographers) will be wearing gloves, masks, and their best prom attire as well.
