The 2017 Prom ticket price is $125 plus 4 hours of parent participation. Yes, the dollars are more than last year, but just wait until you see the amazing things we have planned for 2017.
The good news is the move to the Frisco Conference Center and Embassy Suiteshas the potential to bring the overall cost of prom down by offering savings on parking, hotel suites, and meals.
Free parking is available in the lot surrounding the Embassy Suites and Conference Center, and overflow parking, also free, is available across the street in the Stonebriar Mall parking lot. For anyone who parked in the downtown garage for prom 2016, this alone is a savings of $13. If you would like to park in the Embassy Suites garage, it's just $5 for 12 hours, and $10 for overnight. Valet parking is available for $16.
The Embassy is offering prom families great prices for suites! A king suite, which includes a king bed and a queen sleeper, is just $149 before tax. A double queen suite, which includes 2 double/queen beds and a queen sleeper, is just $155 before tax. Every suite includes a hot breakfast and afternoon appetizers. All suites are equipped with a refrigerator and microwave.
A price increase has been delayed for the past two years because we enjoyed artificially low venue costs. Our prior venue made several decisions that had a negative impact on prom, but they did compensate us with lower prices. Last year, even with the discounted venue prices, revenue from ticket sales did not cover the costs. The deficit was made up by parent financial contributions in lieu of hours and sales of t-shirts and other items. In 2017, the venue charges are increasing by 30% over 2016 costs, and would be even if we were not changing venues.
The decision to change the ticket price was not made lightly, and it is necessary to continue this extraordinary event. TxCHP is committed to keeping the ticket prices as low as possible, but we are also unwilling to compromise the prom experience for our very deserving homeschool students.
