CHAMPAIGN -- High school students aren't the only ones attending prom this year. Some adults had tickets to the big dance to help a great cause.
The Eastern Illinois Foodbank hosted its 5th Annual Prom Benefit Saturday. All the money raised goes to fighting hunger in our region.
The event featured a silent auction. It also had a prom court, made up of donors.
WCIA-3's Morning Show host, Drew Wilder, was on the prom court, but he did not take home the crown for the biggest donor. The King, Elvis, was prom king.
Organizers aimed for $40,000 and raised $11,000 at the event.
