Get fancy and dancey to support Richmond Cycling Corps at the Church Hill Prom for Grown Folks.

A celebration of the neighborhood on a special spring night at the Robinson Theater in historic Church Hill, featuring local food and drink

It’s been a great few years for one of Richmond’s most historic and diverse neighborhoods. Come out and celebrate with neighbors old and new. Anyone who loves Church Hill is invited to attend!

Church Hill Prom for Grown Folks will probably be better than the proms that you remember. Selections from award-winning neighborhood restaurants and Virginia beer and wine will tempt your tastebuds. The Scorpio Brothers playing deep cut soul, R&B, and latin grooves on the turntables will get your other parts moving. If this sounds like fun, it’s for you.

Featured restaurants include: Patrick Henry Pub, Poe’s Pub, Dutch & Company, The Roosevelt, Proper Pie, Union Market, and WPA Bakery. MORE TBA.

Get yourself right in the neighborhood: Seven Hills Studio and Jade Salon both say “save 20% off formal styling for the church hill prom, promo code prom. Valid 4/11.”

Church Hill Prom for Grown Folks is a benefit for Richmond Cycling Corps. RCC provides leadership and personal development to Richmond’s urban youth through the sport of cycling. They’ve started the Armstrong High School Cycling Team (the nation’s only inner-city high school cycling team), who ended up ranked third in the National Interscholastic Cycling Association fall race series in 2014. Richmond Cycling Corps built a bike park between Armstrong High School and Fairfield Court public housing complex for team and community use. The organization is expanding to Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School and will compete in the middle school division in 2015.

Named for Bill “Bojangles” Robinson and built in 1937, the Robinson Theater was a sophisticated version of Art Deco Moderne architecture and an icon of Church Hill North. After falling vacant in the 1980s, the Robinson Theater was restored with a full replica of the original marquee again bringing light to the neighborhood.
