We Need Your Help!

This year, we are asking for your support for this and future proms and events. Please help us “dance on” by stopping by the donation station during Prom and making a contribution of any amount. We will be selling our traditional “ASK ME” T-shirts for $25, as well as our new “Show Your Love” ladies’ shirts for $20. We also have a limited number of custom-crafted domino pendants available for a donation of $15. We will accept cash, checks, or certain credit cards. No Worries Now is an all-volunteer organization which exists solely because of the generosity of people like you. Please help us give another teen the chance to dance.
