(BLOOMFIELD) - The Annual Mom Prom in Greene County is Saturday.

The Mom Prom is a fundraising event to help pay the expenses for sexual assault nurse examiners (SANE) nurses at the Greene County General Hospital.

The Greene County Daily World reports, SANE nurse is specifically trained in forensic exams for sexual assault victims. It's a specialized and careful examination to collect forensic evidence that is crucial for prosecution.

In years past, victims of sexual assault had to travel outside the county for an exam. Thanks to the efforts of Greene County's SART in supporting the nurses and raising funds, local victims can receive services at Greene County General Hospital.

The event not only raises money for an important cause, but it also gives women a chance to get dressed up and get out of the house for a special ladies only event.

Participants come in all styles of attire ranging from old high school prom dresses to fancy pants.

This year's Mom Prom will take place on Saturday, from 7-10 p.m. at the Pepperoni Grill, located on Main Street in Bloomfield.

The event is organized by the women who serve on Greene County's Sexual Assault Response Team (SART).

Tickets are now available to purchase for $20 each and can be purchased by contacting Vickie or Cheri at the Greene County Prosecutor's Office at (812) 384-4998. The event is reserved for ladies only and they must be 21 years or older to enter the door.

The Mom Prom will feature music and dancing, along with food and refreshments.

Each year their is the crowning of a Prom Queen, which is determined by the popular vote of all the participants that evening. Last year, Sara Ross received the Prom Queen honor.
