CHARLOTTE — LGBT Prom Charlotte 2011 will be held on April 16 at the American Legion #380, 4235 W. Tyvola Rd., from 8 p.m.-1 a.m. The “A Dream Come True” prom is being dedicated to all LGBT suicide victims and survivors.

Founder Shane Henderson says that she hopes that LGBT people who did not get to attend a prom while in school, can finally have a venue to experience this among their peers. She is not limiting the attendees to just the Queen City and encourages others from near and far to venture down to the celebration.

Free entertainment, complimentary hors d’oeuvres, a candy/dessert buffet and cash, prizes and giveaways will highlight the evening’s fare. Tickets are $25/person, $40/couple.

VIP tables, with premium location placement, are available for $60 which can seat two to six people. Included are 1 to 2 bottles of champagne, champagne glasses (yes, you can even take them home), gift bags, no line/no wait buffet and more. Tables are limited.

To make a reservation or for more information, call 980-475-5402 or 704-491-2014 or email or visit : :
