Relive your best '80s prom memories at the Orchid Garden this weekend

Ever want to relive all the bad parts of the ’80s, like teased hair and unnecessary angst, with the good parts of now, like being an adult who can purchase alcohol? You can do all that and help a charity at Mel’s Bad Girls Club’s ninth annual prom, which has a, like, totally ’80s theme this year. The proceeds will go to BASE Camp Children’s Cancer Foundation, a Winter Park organization that helps families facing cancer or other life-threatening illnesses. The event beats most high school prom venues and is cheaper, plus you don’t have to sneak in your booze. Bring your taffeta dresses and skinny ties to the party and enjoy the MBGC Band, chance drawings and a silent auction.

8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 29 | The Orchid Garden, 126 W. Church St. | melsbgc.org | $30-$40
