“Project Graduation is a program offered by many high schools in the United States, during which organized, adult-supervised and alcohol free activities are offered as part of a post-graduation party, as an alternative to a student-run events involving alcoholic beverages or other drugs,” said a press release from the Project Graduation committee.

All donations will be used for the 2022 graduating class.

“Each year we start from zero and use all the donations to ensure that each graduate leaves the event well-fed, having had a great time and with at least one door prize and one large gift,” the release said.

The committee also is selling Port Aransas flags to raise money. The flags are $30 each and may be purchased at Fly it Port A, 405 W. Ave. G. Flags also may be purchased through Heather Collins. Contact her at (361) 739-7498.
