Now in its fourth year, the LGBTQIA+ & Allies Prom is an opportunity for young people to experience a formal-style event and express their identity in a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental environment. This free event will be held at the Ainslie Football Club on Friday 8 November and is strictly drug and alcohol-free.
Last year, through the incredible generosity of our community we were able to ensure that all young people were able to attend the prom free of charge.
We want to do this again!
If you have any questions about the LGBTQIA+ & Allies Prom, contact YWCA Canberra Youth Programs Team Leader, Ciára Duggan, at Ciara.Duggan@ywca-canberra.org.au
The LGBTQIA+ & Allies Prom Awards!
YWCA Canberra knows that there are some exceptional young people in our community and we want to give them the recognition they deserve. These awards will be presented at this event.
To ensure this event is completely free and accessible for all young people aged 12-25 years to attend, we are calling on the community to help us by sponsoring a ticket for a young person to attend.
Tickets are $60 each and include a formal sit down dinner, activities and entertainment.
You can choose the amount that you can afford to sponsor, so if you can’t afford the full $60 you can cover half or part of a ticket for $30 or $20. It all counts!
Please note that our automated ticketing function will ask you for information such as dietary concerns when you sponsor the ticket. Please don’t worry about including accurate details.
If you have organised a fundraising event and would like to donate a different amount to the LGBTQIA+ Allies Prom, please contact YWCA Canberra Youth Programs Team Leader, Ciára Duggan, at Ciara.Duggan@ywca-canberra.org.au
If you are 12 to 25 years old and you would like to attend this free event, register your interest through our Survey Monkey form before 5pm, Friday 1 November 2019.
