FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — South Forsyth High School’s DECA chapter and marketing students will present “Surf’s Up with DECA,” a prom fashion show at 6 and 8:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 12 in the school’s Performing Arts Center, 585 Peachtree Parkway.
Students have been busy planning the production since August. The show’s theme, choreography, props and various other facets have been created by South Forsyth’s fashion marketing classes.
Members of DECA, an association of marketing students, are also involved in assisting with this annual event and fundraiser.
Students are challenged with learning how to produce a professional
fashion show, while earning money to help DECA members attend conferences and competitions throughout the year. Community service has always been a large part of the SFHS DECA Prom Fashion Show and this year is no exception.
The show will be supporting the Rally Foundation, a non-profit whose goal is to raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer research.
Donations will be accepted during intermission.
More than 70 students will model in the show.
“This is the biggest project our DECA chapter does all year,” said Senior Will Bradley, who will serve in his third year as co-emcee and model. “Beginning to end, we plan every part of it, down to the most minor of details. It’s really awesome to see it finally come together in January and to be a part of such a big tradition at South. It’s also something really fun to do with so many of my friends.”
Entertainment provided by South Forsyth students will also be showcased.
The SFHS DECA Prom Fashion Show strives to be a community event. Local elementary school students who attend the 6 p.m. show are invited to walk with the models on stage.
The prom fashions will be provided by RSVP Prom and Pageant in Johns Creek and Tuxedo WearHouse in Cumming. Tickets are $7 and can be purchased at the door.
