Mom Prom

  • Elks Country Club 3050 East South Street Hastings, NE, 68901 United States (map)

Mom Prom is a ladies' night out that supports a great cause- The Special Children’s Fund. It's a chance to get together, dress up, and go out dancing with friends. Mom Prom will be held at the Hastings Elks Country Club on Friday, June 8th from 7-11 pm.

Moms and their friends can wear their old prom gowns, bridesmaid dresses, or thrift store finds. Go out to dinner together and then come to the Elks for the big event: MOM PROM, a “prom”-style dance with a DJ, drinks, photo booth, and a raffle/silent auction. This is a wonderful night where women can dance the night away, have fun with their friends, and help a worthy cause.

There are Mom Proms all over the country, and we're so excited to bring one to Hastings! Go to to read about the original Mom Prom ladies of Michigan.

So go look for that old dress in the back of your closet (or your friend's closet) and get ready to have fun while helping others.

The Special Children’s Fund assists with uncovered medical expenses incurred by children 18 and under who live in or receive services in Adams, Webster, Clay or Nuckolls counties.

The mission of the Special Children’s Fund is to assure every child receive medical care in a timely manner, prevent secondary problems related to a delay in health care, relieve financial stress and promote family unity.

Referrals come from health care providers, social workers, teachers, counselors and other agencies that work with children. All non-urgent needs are discussed at the Special Children’s Fund’s monthly meetings.

What should I wear to Mom Prom?
Dress for Mom Prom is fun and fancy. We would love to see everything from cocktail dresses to poofy gowns and everything in between. Don't buy anything brand new - if you don't have anything in your closet you can probably find something great at a local thrift store. Have something vintage? Great! This year we are looking at an 80s theme so 1980s and 90s style are especially welcome. Have an old bridesmaid dress? Great! Finally, here's your chance to wear it again. Have an old prom dress that still fits you? WOW! :)

Will there be food?
There will be a few snacks but going out to dinner beforehand, all dressed up, can start the fun even before you get to the dance.

Can I get something to drink at Mom Prom?
Yes – The Elks club has a full bar. A cash bar is available for our event. Water will always be available for free.

What should I bring?
When you purchase your ticket, it generates a receipt. Print the receipt and bring it with you. Bring some cash to purchase raffle tickets and tip your bartender.

Is there a minimum age requirement?
Yes, you must be at least 21 years old. Please bring your ID. 

Should I bring my husband/boyfriend?
Not tonight! This is a ladies' night out. But do ask him if he'll drive you to and from the event.

Who is organizing Hastings Mom Prom?
Hastings Mom Prom 2018 is organized by Lydia Lough, Lauren Slaughter, and Julie Mullen. These three were looking for a good excuse to dress up and go out. Joking about a “Mom’s Night Out” turned into Hastings Mom Prom. Realizing that a good time could help more than just their sanity, they decided to turn the night into a fundraiser.
