OVER two-dozen desserts will be up for grabs during the Swather basketball games on Tuesday, Feb. 14. The After Prom Dessert Raffle will be on display through halftime of the boys varsity game. Tickets will be on sale until the end of the second quarter. Winners must be present to claim their desserts.
If you are looking for a treat for your sweetheart this Valentines Day, look no further than the Hesston High gym during the boys and girls varsity games this Tuesday, Feb. 14.
The After Prom committee is hosting its annual dessert raffle during the games. Fans can purchase tickets, one for $1; seven for $5 and 30 for $20. All proceeds will benefit After Prom.
Gwen Roth, this year’s Dessert Raffle coordinator, said After Prom is an important Hesston tradition for students.
“It’s all for the party the parents throw for the kids after prom so they have a safe, chemical free, place to be and have fun together,” she said.
This year, Roth added, one of the most decadent desserts is a cheesecake by Darren Hiebert.
“His cheesecakes are always very popular,” she said.
Another crowd pleaser, homemade cinnamon rolls, will also be up for grabs.
“Beth Rizza is bringing something too, and she’s pretty popular with the desserts she bakes,” said Roth.
This year’s offerings, with over two-dozen desserts to choose from, will also include cookies, cakepops and cupcakes.
“We’ve had quite a few parents who have volunteered and we’ve made some phone calls,” said Roth.
The dessert raffle tickets will be on sale until the end of the second quarter of the varsity boys game. The drawing will take place during half time and winners must be present to win and receive their desserts.
