    Taylor DiSantisSpeaking of Sweet Charity check out this cool story (and others!).

    Sweet charity

    Watching the excesses described on the MTV reality show “My Super Sweet 16” last summer led St. Joseph Central High School sophomore Taylor DiSantis to turn his 16th birthday party on March 3 into a fundraiser for teen activities.

    DiSantis, with help from fellow St. Joseph’s students Ryan Storie, Eric Kulpa, Jessica Healy and Courtney Failla, raised $2,200 that they plan to use to provide financial and other mentoring assistance for Berkshire County youngsters between the ages of 5 and 18. More than 100 teens from four high schools attended DiSantis’ party, which took place at the Sons of Italy’s Itam Lodge.

    “I was expecting $1,000 at best,” DiSantis said.

    Introducing Prom Queen.TV

    Gear Live reports:
    Michael Eisner, former CEO of Disney, has announced the formation of Vuguru, a studio that will develop what they claim will be a “slickly written, produced, and acted Web video about love, gossip and betrayal.” In other words, his investment company, The Tornate, will be producing a professionally made YouTube soap opera.

    Eisner feels that although YouTube has won the first battle in Internet TV, real media moguls will ultimately win the broadband war. His first show will be “Prom Queen,” a who-done-it with daily 90-second installments beginning April 2. You will find all 80 episodes on Vuguru.com, Ellegirl.com (a “Prom Queen” sponsor,) Veoh, and of course, YouTube.

    A Chamberlain High School teacher was accused of embezzling almost $10,000 from the north Tampa school’s senior class prom fund.

    The Spoto junior class realizes the importance of the senior prom. They have decided to forego their junior prom to save money for next year’s senior prom. Spoto opened in August and has no graduating class this year.

    Lindsay Landram, a Spoto teacher and the junior-class adviser, called Chamberlain with one question: What can we do to help?

    Project Prom has a Winner

    Bruce Graner/ bgraner@pnj.comBased on the mega popular show Project Runway, Project Prom has declared it’s winner this year.

    Check out this cool interview with the winner.

    Courtney-Cotrelle Cromartie isn’t being conceited when he says he “wasn’t worried about the competition.”

    The 22-year-old, named Saturday as the Top Aspiring Fashion Designer in the Pensacola Bay Area at the second annual Project Prom, said he was concerned about one thing only during the competition: making sure client Amber Matejka was happy.

    “That was very important to me,” he said. “I think it was important to all the designers.”

    Congratz! I am sure everyone had a great time on Project Prom and I am sure Courtney-Cotrelle Cromartie has a great design future to look forward to!
