A photo gallery of innovative ways area young men asked their dates to prom.
It's not enough for a high schooler to simply ask a girl to be his date for prom.

Here are a couple ways some area young men asked their dates/ girlfriends to prom. Don't have a date, yet? Well, boys - or girls - borrow one of these ideas and get one.

Close to 200 Crystal Lake Central students danced the night away Saturday for a good cause. Every year, Central hosts a charity week. This year, a group of student leaders from Central decided to hold a dance-a-thon to raise money for the children's cardiac unit at Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago.
