DONNA KLEIN JEWISH ACADEMY
The Second Chance Prom Dance and Auction begins at 8:30 p.m. March 25 at The Polo Club of Boca Raton. The festivities include the crowning of a prom queen and king, traditional prom photos, a special yearbook display and a tribute to Donna Klein Jewish Academy’s Claire and Emanuel G. Rosenblatt High School Class of 2017. The event, planned for students’ parents and guests, will raise funds for the school’s academic programs, fine arts, athletic program and need-based tuition assistance. Tickets are $200. Students will have their own prom later in the year.
