Tacky Prom Recap 2024

By: Marty Blader

On Wed. April 24th, members from all committees of IUDM gathered at The Warehouse in Bloomington to dress up and dance the night away at Tacky Prom. This annual event is designed to raise money for Riley Hospital for Children, while simultaneously celebrating this semester’s achievements.

In coordination to the “Tacky” theme, committee members scoured their closets and combined their most unusual and unexpected articles of clothing. This year’s attendees embraced the dress code with looks varying from old prom dresses, to Canadian tuxedos and everything in-between!

The event also consisted of DJ Chuck B, a tacky fashion show, and crowning the king and queen of Tacky Prom. The fashion show was a friendly competition amongst the best dressed members from each committee. Attendees voted by donating to the pages of each nominee to help them get more donations and win the fashion show. IUDM raised over $900 during the Tacky Prom fashion show and the overall winner was Morgan Lane from the Entertainment Committee.

“I’d like to thank my mom for being my inspiration for my outfit. I was going for an 80s prom vibe and I think I nailed it,” Lane said.

To determine the Tacky Prom court, the focuses each nominated a king and queen court. The nominees fought it out in a dance battle and the winners were determined by who got the most cheers. The winners were Bobby from special events and Kaitlyn from stewardship. 

Emma Bastin, Vice President of Internal Operations, explains that her favorite event of Tacky Prom is the fashion show. She loves that it gives people the opportunity to express their personalities. Bastin also describes what makes Tacky Prom a unique event.

“Tacky Prom is a special event to members of IUDM because it is a chance to come together as an organization in silly outfits and just have a good time,” said Bastin. “This year’s Tacky Prom was scheduled for the end of the semester and served as a celebration of all of our efforts in the spring.”
