About Celebration

Celebration is the “safe haven” post-prom event for all Bromfield juniors and seniors (whether they attend prom or not) and prom dates, put on by a large community of parents and other volunteers.

For years, The Bromfield School has been decorated in line with a secret theme with the help of our entire community. Celebration 2020 was to have been the 25th anniversary of this great community tradition.  The school is transformed in about 8 hours to a welcoming, fun, substance-free environment to be enjoyed by the students and their guests. Families and anyone else interested “ooh and aah” at the transformation during the public walk-through which is held prior to the students’ arrival.

Making Celebration happen takes a volunteer army of parents, friends, and anyone else with a desire to help keep Bromfield teens safe on prom night.  Many students help with Celebration set up, tear down, or fundraising at some point during their time at Bromfield. All involved feel it’s well-worth the effort to help prevent post-prom tragedies. There is entertainment, lots of good food, and places for students to ‘hang’ in small groups to talk and contemplate their lives ahead – maybe even dream!

Key to attendance is keeping the event no-charge for the students, and also keeping them engaged through the night with activities, entertainment, and food. While much is borrowed for the event, donations of all kinds are needed to make Celebration happen. Individual and corporate monetary donations are always appreciated and there are ways to donate other items such as food. There are many opportunities to donate time and talent also —creatively, administratively, support for set-up and take-down, and many others.
