The 9th Annual Adult Prom will at the Bayfront Convention Center from 7pm until 11pm on April 22, 2023. The cost of the ticket will be $100 per person for a table and $90 per person for a mingle ticket. This will include open bar, snacks, photo booth, professional photographer, and dancing. You must be 21 or over to attend.
Tickets will be going on sale to the public on December 1, 2022. We will also be selling corporate tables and seats starting November 17 at noon. We have three levels of sponsorship; Purple Rose, Gold, and Platinum Sponsorships. You can find the costs of these sponsorships on the Corporate Sponsorship page. Corporate sponsorship guarantees you tickets before they go on sale to the public and your seats will be right next to the dance floor.
This year we will be using a map of the room for you to select the location of the table and seats you purchase. If you are going with a group, we suggest that you purchase your tickets together so you can get at the same table. Once the seat is sold, we can not move you. It's ok, we don't expect you to sit long anyway.
We will have Erie's finest in professional photography throughout the venue including a sunset photog starting at 7 pm and lasting until the sun goes down. We will also be placing even more professional photographers in scenic locations all over Erie starting at 4 pm so you can get your photo taken before you attend the prom. We will be sending out a sign up sheets with all the locations and photographers in April.
There are 50 rooms available at both the Bayfront Marriott and the Bayfront Sheraton. You can book at a cost of $145 per night. We will have a link up on our website by December 1st so you can book a room if you plan to stay over or make a weekend out of the event. We will announce on Facebook when that link becomes available. Please do not book your room until you have your ticket. A room reservation does not guarantee you a ticket into the event.
We are excited to be working with the City of Erie and the Erie Downtown Partnership to provide a list of restaurants that will be supporting The Adult Prom. We will do our best to make it easy for your group to reserve for dinner. We will post more information once we finalize those plans.
We have a few more details to work out but we will save those announcement for later. We are just excited that The Adult Prom lives on. We hope you can join us for a night of good times and partying with a purpose!
We are excited about the new venue with new opportunities for everyone to enjoy.
WHERE IT ALL STARTED
Charlee Cook with her parents at The Adult Prom 2014 at the historic Riverside Inn, Cambridge PA.
Charlee Elizabeth Cook is the now eleven-year old daughter of Samantha McKissock and Ryan Cook who was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis when she was 1 month old. Charlee was the inspiration for this event back in 2013.
Cystic fibrosis is a chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. People with cystic fibrosis produce mucus that is abnormally thick and sticky that can obstruct the airways causing severe breathing problems and bacterial infections in the lungs. This disease occurs in 1 in 2500-3500 Caucasian newborns and less in other ethnic groups. To learn more about cystic fibrosis, please visit https://www.cff.org/.
