Senior proms are awkward, expensive, pretentious affairs. Isnt there anything better to do with your time and money? Thats what RIVERWOOD HIGH SCHOOL students asked before deciding to forgo the prom and donate prom funds to nonprofit group CAREs tsunami relief efforts. The local community responded to the schools gesture with a flood of donations. Nearly $10,000 ultimately was donated to CARE. The school received some donations as well enough to go ahead with the prom after all.
