The ceremonies will begin at noon and will also include gift cards and prizes. Pre-registered guests are automatically entered in a drawing for an iPad Mini. Food and drink will be provided and prepared by TCHS Culinary Arts Students.

The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday. The campus is located at 443 West Boot Road in Brandywine, Pa.
