Local youth walk down the red carpet during 'A Night at the Oscars' formal

A Night at the Oscars with Red Carpet was the theme of the 9th annual YMCA Winter Formal event. The event was open to all area sixth, seventh and eighth graders. The formal required the youth to dress in a 'Sunday' like attire. The formal was held at the Knights of Columbus Hall on Radio Hill Road and garnered 330 area students. Youth enjoyed dancing along with food and drinks throughout the formal. A photographer also took pictures of the couples throughout the evening. Misti Hollrah, event coordinator, said the event was awesome. She said the building was very warm, which added to a good night away from the cold weather outside. Tickets went on sale for $10 each in mid-January and could be purchased at the door, but they quickly sold out.
