Fayette Happenings in the next few days


This Saturday Rotary Club of Fayetteville hosts Senior Citizen Prom and fundraiser

The Rotary Club of Fayetteville will host its 1st Annual Senior Citizen Prom and Fundraiser, “A Night in Hollywood,” Saturday, Aug. 24, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. The evening is for adults 62 years and older, as part of Rotary International’s ongoing efforts to honor and engage our seniors.

The event will be held at Daisy Hill Farms Event facility in Fayetteville, Ga., and is sponsored by Heartis Fayetteville.

With a vision of bringing joy and nostalgia to our local senior population, the Senior Prom event will allow guests to enjoy all the classic elements of a high school prom, while dressed in fancy attire, enjoying heavy Hors d’oeuvres catered by Tammy from Miami and reminiscing.  Senior Prom goers are also invited to hit the dance floor to get their muscles going and burn off some calories.  Musical entertainment will be provided by DJ Tommy Eskew.  The evening will be topped off with the crowning of the Senior Prom King and Queen.

The event is NO COST to age 62+ adults, and funds raised will benefit The Yellow Butterfly Fund.
