“I was bound and determined that my daughter got a prom,” she said. “This has been on my mind since last year, honestly.”
The Lillis family decided to host its own prom when they realized the district would not be able to have a dance. Due to COVID-19 concerns, the schools were hosting a prom substitute consisting of a grand march and a photo.
But that just wasn’t a prom. So Stephanie and Greg Lillis stepped in. They reserved the venue. They coordinated the catering. They hired a DJ.
“We were very lucky that we were able to put this together in a short amount of time,” Greg Lillis told Post Bulletin reporter Jordan Shearer. “It truly has been a second full-time job to pull this off, but it’s been totally worth it.”
