| $40

Forget everything you know about high school prom—itchy dresses and stifling cummerbunds, awkward boutonniere pinning, and that time all your friends got to take a limo but you got stuck with your grandma’s Oldsmobile…

…Because 826CHI is putting on ONE PROM TO RULE THEM ALL1. This year’s theme is Promic-Con, so prepare your bodies for a night of absolute magic via the shameless celebration of all things fandom2. Mark your calendars: Saturday, April 27th, from 8pm to midnight—and we’ve secured the School of the Art Institute Ballroom (!!!).
Pull your cape out of storage,
Dust off your dress robes3,
Align yourself Chaotic Neutral4,
Find yourself some red underpants5 (or maybe a red bow tie6),
And prepare to find your OTP7.
Come dressed in all manners of fandom (or secondhand formal-wear) for a night of cosplay, geeking out, silent auctioning, caricature-drawing, raffling, (free) drinking, and DANCING. Tickets are $40 for one, $75 for two, and $45 each at the door, and includes a whole night’s worth of free drinks and food (scroll down to purchase). All proceeds from the event benefit 826CHI’s free writing programs for thousands of Chicago students.

Ship8 yourself with all the nerds at this year’s Promic-Con–April 27th at the SAIC Ballroom. Allons-y9!
