The mirror ball will be spinning at the third annual Covenant Place Senior Prom. Sponsored by the Young Professionals Division (YPD) of the Jewish Federation of St. Louis, the prom provides an evening of nostalgic fun and an opportunity for older adults to dress up and take a spin around the dance floor. 

“Meet Me in St. Louis” is the theme, in keeping with the citywide celebration of St. Louis’s 250th birthday in 2014. All generations are invited to join the fun and enjoy treats that made St. Louis famous, live DJ, prize raffle, games and the crowning of the Prom King and Queen.

“Senior Prom is the event everyone looks forward to all year,” said Joan Denison, Covenant Place Executive Director, in a news release. “The young adults who host the event and the older adults mix it up on the dance floor and enjoy each other’s company. It’s a chance to walk down memory lane without all the worry about who your date will be and what your friends will think of your dress; just like high school — only better.”

The event, which typically draws more than 200 people, takes place from 7 to 9 p.m. Sunday, June 1 at the Covenant I building, 10 Millstone Campus Drive. Tickets are $5 for residents of Covenant Place and $8 for non-residents. Tickets may be purchased through the Covenant Place office at 314-432-1610. For more information, visit
