THE REAL O'NEALS - "The Real Prom" - As the school prom approaches, Kenny tries to think of who the best guy would be to ask as his date. With time running out, Kenny and Jimmy try to come up with the perfect "prom-posal" for the classmates they each have set their sights on. Shannon thinks the idea behind prom is a scam and would rather stay at home, but once Pat discovers she was asked to attend, he tries to convince her to go. Meanwhile, Eileen tries to keep VP Murray's romantic attention at bay but struggles to resist, on the season finale of "The Real O'Neals," TUESDAY, MAY 24 (8:30-9:00 p.m. EDT) on the ABC Television Network.

Prom is for grown-ups too, and it’s happening this weekend

Here is a reason to dust off that powder blue tuxedo and metallic gold lamé prom dress: Dayton Adult Prom is going down this weekend. 

Liftoff Entertainment, a Dayton entertainment company, will host its second Adult Prom from 8 to 11 p.m. Saturday, March 2, at Top of the Market, 32 Webster St. in downtown Dayton. 

 

Proceeds from this year’s event will benefit Luv4K9s and Pirate Packs.

Luv4k9s is a non-profit dog rescue based in Dayton. Pirate Packs mission is to provide weekend food assistance to students throughout the West Carrollton School district.

Jay Nigro, Liftoff’s owner, said people can come up with their own definition of formal for the bash.

“Re-live your high school prom or redo that,” he said. “If formal to you is a camo vest and a bow tie, do that.”

It is meant as a no-judgement affair.

“Break out the old or come in something new,” Nigro said.
