Mom Prom

  • C3 Convetion Center 2205 Osborne Drive East Hastings, NE, 68901 United States (map)

Mom Prom is a ladies' night out that supports a great cause. This year we are supporting MentoringWorks of Hastings. It's a chance to get together, dress up, and go out dancing with friends. Mom Prom will be held at the C3 Hotel & Convention Center on Friday, May 17th from 7:30-11:30 pm.

Moms and their friends can wear their old prom gowns, bridesmaid dresses, or thrift store finds. Go out to dinner together and then come to the C3 Hotel and Convention Center for the big event: MOM PROM, a “prom”-style dance with a DJ, drinks, photo booth, and a raffle/silent auction. This is a wonderful night where women can dance the night away, have fun with their friends, and help a worthy cause.

There are Mom Proms all over the country, and we're so excited to bring one to Hastings! Go to to read about the original Mom Prom ladies of Michigan.

So go look for that old dress in the back of your closet (or your friend's closet) and get ready to have fun while helping others.


At MentoringWorks our mission is to cultivate transformative relationships that build a foundation of success for mentors, mentees and the community. Our vision is that all children can achieve success in life. Through our two programs, SchoolConnect and CareerConnect, we can help. SchoolConnect is a program where we match elementary school students with high school & college students for one on one mentoring time. Here students play games, do schoolwork, learn skills, and discuss school and life. In this last year we served over 800 students in this program. Our CareerConnect program pairs juniors & seniors with a worker in the community. Through their one on one relationship, mentees can learn about opportunities in the community, skills needed to succeed in different careers, and receive general life mentoring. Thru both of these programs we aim to create lasting change in the lives of students, and throughout our community.


What should I wear to Mom Prom?
This year we are doing a PRINCESS THEME.
Dress for Mom Prom is fun and fancy. We would love to see everything from cocktail dresses to poofy gowns and everything in between. Don't buy anything brand new - if you don't have anything in your closet you can probably find something great at a local thrift store. Have something vintage? Great! Have an old bridesmaid dress? Great! Finally, here's your chance to wear it again. Have an old prom dress that still fits you? WOW! :) Make it fun, and

Will there be food?
There will be a few snacks but going out to dinner beforehand, all dressed up, can start the fun even before you get to the dance.

Can I get something to drink at Mom Prom?
Yes – The C3 Convention Center has a full bar. A cash bar is available for our event. Water will always be available for free.

What should I bring?
When you purchase your ticket, it generates a receipt. Print the receipt and bring it with you. Bring some cash to purchase raffle tickets and tip your bartender.

Is there a minimum age requirement?
Yes, you must be at least 21 years old. Please bring your ID.

Should I bring my husband/boyfriend?
Not tonight! This is a ladies' night out. But do ask him if he'll drive you to and from the event.

Who is organizing Hastings Mom Prom?
Hastings Mom Prom 2019 is organized by Lydia Lough, Lauren Slaughter, and Julie Mullen. These three were looking for a good excuse to dress up and go out. Joking about a “Mom’s Night Out” turned into Hastings Mom Prom. Realizing that a good time could help more than just their sanity, they decided to turn the night into a fundraiser.
