Sophomores at North Hagerstown High School are holding an auction Saturday, Sept. 13 to help raise money for their 1999 junior-senior prom.
"It's traditional for juniors to pay for the prom, held in May," said Anne Stickler, North High social studies teacher and sophomore class adviser.
She said the students began raising money as freshmen last year when they brought in $800 selling catalog holiday gifts.
This year they're trying something different. Stickler said students have been soliciting businesses to make donations for the auction.
The idea is to get the community more involved in the school's activities. Stickler also said it's a way of relieving parents, relatives and friends from having to support high-priced student catalog sales.
