Rosie's Place for Claytrain to Prom

Over the past week, the CCHS Senior and Junior class boys have been involved in a "prom tux group" on Facebook, creating edited images of a single photo of a gentleman in a Vera Wang tuxedo. After several days, this man was identified as Clayton Straker and was added to the group. The gofundme page to fly him out for our prom this spring was unfortunately shut down after raising more than half the money needed. In response to this, Clayton told us to set a goal to raise money for a charity that we care about, and if we reach that goal, he would fly himself out.

In honor of International Women’s Day, which is March 8 and the launch date for this project, the Senior and Junior class boys have decided to begin fundraising for Rosie’s Place, a women’s shelter in Boston. The money raised will go to sheltering, clothing, feeding, and providing emergency services for poor and homeless women, and doing much more for them as well. Visit their website for more info. Our goal in this project is to raise as much money for this incredible charity as possible, hopefully raising far more than the original goal of $1000.

Unfortunately, Clayton is not allowed to attend our prom. However, we still encourage all to donate. Any amount helps, and it is all going towards an amazing cause!
