Concord Mom Prom - Proceeds to Benefit Friends Youth Mentoring

Ladies! Here's your chance to get all glammed up, dance the night away, and support a great cause! Not just for moms - all women over 18 who want an excuse to get dressed up and have fun are welcome and should come! Tickets are $40 and can be purchased online at or at OutFITters' Concord location on South Main Street.
