Mom Prom was created in Canton, MI in 2006 at St. Thomas a’Becket Catholic Church. It is a ladies night out for charity in which women wear their old prom gowns, bridesmaids dresses, or wedding gowns. It is a real prom with a DJ, karaoke, a tackiest dress contest, and a game to crown the new queen. This is a wonderful, hilarious night in which women can dance the night away, have fun with friends, and help a worthy cause. We hope to have ladies groups from across the country create their own proms, raising money for charities that are close to their hearts. So look for that old gown in the back of your closet and get ready to dance, dance, dance while helping those in need.
The Saratoga Mom Prom is pleased to announce that we have chosen Gateway House of Peace and the Empty Stocking Project as our beneficiaries this year.

In a few short years, Mom Prom has spread across the country. Mom Prom has been featured on many of your favorite TV shows, like Good Morning America, FOX News, and The Gayle King Show, as well as in publications such as The New York Times and USA Today.
