Fasten your corsage, put on your dancing shoes, and come celebrate the start of summer in style… and show the invincible Red Hook the love (and party!) it deserves. It's prom, just like high school… only better!

The Red Hook Prom: A prom for adults is the annual gala benefiting Cora Dance, a vital arts organization keeping Red Hook strong. We hope you will join us.

DJ (spinning '80s tunes and requests)
Delicious food (from Red Hook's own Pete Ascolese and Hope & Anchor)
Punch (spiked by Dry Dock of Red Hook)
The crowning of Red Hook Queen or King (do you have what it takes?)
PLUS get your '80s hair done by Elements Hair Studio (teased to perfection)
in a REAL HIGH SCHOOL GYM decked out in style!
