Kenner, Louisiana 70062

THEME:  A Midsummer Night's Dream

COST:  $35 per ticket

***The $35 fee (per person) is non-refundable if you change your mind about participating after this date. (3/28).

Tickets will be sold in the following order: 

  • CHEF of GNO Members (Ages 13-19) beginning Friday, February 17th

  • Plus One of CHEF of GNO Members (Ages 13-19) beginning Wednesday, February 22nd

  • Homeschool Teen Non-Member (Ages 13-19) beginning Saturday, February 25th

Your RSVP is not valid until your order form is filled out and tickets are paid for.

Max capacity is 70 teens.  At 70, we must close the RSVP list and start a waiting list.

GUESTS/Plus One:  Homeschooled teens are permitted to bring a parent-approved opposite gender Plus One.   Your Plus One can be any teen between the ages of 13-19 regardless of school/homeschool.

Dates are neither encouraged nor prohibited.  If your teen would like to bring a plus one of the opposite gender and you feel comfortable with it - this is permissible.  NO SAME GENDER PLUS ONES.  CHEF does not encourage “dating” and we would like to be clear that this is by no means “a date-type” event.  No family should feel like their teen needs to find a plus one to go with them to this formal.  In fact, many (if not most) will probably not have a guest.


Boys must wear a coat, dress shirt and tie, slacks and nice shoes.  A sports coat is fine.  A suit is fine.  Absolutely no shorts, jeans, t-shirts, polos, ripped/distressed clothing, or old tennis shoes can be worn.  New dress tennis shoes are permitted.

Girls must wear a dress: Floor length dress preferred, (not mandatory).  Other options: prom dress (mid-thigh or longer, high/low) and dress shoes or heels.  No pants, slacks, or pant suits.  Anyone wearing anything skintight, see-thru, shorter than mid-thigh or inappropriately low cut will not be permitted to enter the formal.  Dresses with high leg slits or plunging necklines will not be permitted.  Strapless is permitted, two-piece dress is permitted as long as it’s not a crop top with midriff exposed.

If questionable, feel free to email for pre-approval to  I would like to reiterate that modesty should be at the forefront.  We will check dress code at the door, and WE WILL TURN AWAY those who don't follow it.

MUSIC: appropriate (non-explicit) pop, dance, hip hop, and alternative music will be played throughout the night. Song requests will be taken beforehand and previewed for appropriateness.  Dancing is permitted (and expected)!  Song requests with suggestive lyrics, drug use, drinking, or language will not be played.  Clean versions will be played when possible! You can submit your song request using the link at the bottom or by emailing

PICTURES:  Gabrielle's Photography will be taking professional photos with the backdrop.

Pictures will be taken from 5:00pm-6:00pm.  We will have a professional photographer offering various picture packages that you can purchase. Please plan to arrive at 5pm if you would like professional pictures taken. We will only offer pictures for one hour. You must be in line no later than 5:30pm.  No pictures will be taken after 6pm so please plan your group photos accordingly.

FOOD: Dinner, dessert, and refreshments will be available.  We will serve a pasta/jambalaya dinner along with salad, finger sandwiches, fruit and veggie tray, and dessert!

VOTING/AWARDS:  Awards will be given in the following categories: Prom Queen, Prom King, Jr. Prom Queen, Jr. Prom King, Best Dressed Girl, Best Dressed Boy, Best Dancer Girl, and Best Dancer Boy.  Voting will take place during the dance.  All homeschooled seniors are eligible for Prom Queen/King.  Please indicate if you have a homeschooled senior at time of purchase so they can be added to the ballot.  All students in attendance are eligible for the remaining categories (Jr. Queen/King, Best Dressed, and Best Dancer).


We will need as many hands as possible to help in the days leading up to the event!  If you are able to help in any way, please use the signup genius link!  We will need some heavy lifting (preferable dads) to help set up tables and chairs the Thursday before the dance.  The day before, Thursday, we will need help during the morning and daytime decorating.  Volunteers will also be needed during the dance and for cleanup afterwards.
