Not sure about you guys, but the only gifts I ever walked away from a high school dance with was the gift of listening to “Nights in White Satin,” which was our prom song for some reason. So high school dances were probably kinda lame for most of us, but now we’re adults and it’s time to retcon all that history: we’re celebrating Brokelyn’s fifth birthday at the Brokelyn High Homecoming Dance on Oct. 16 at the Bell House, but we’re giving you the presents. We’ve rounded up a selection of some of the finest things Brooklyn has to offer, including meals, tattoos, shuffleboard, classes and, of course, a BRAND NEW BIKE from Ride Brooklyn! Each prize is worth an average $100 or more. It’s enough to make you earn a varsity letter in “Free Swag.” See the full list below!

You already know we’ll be jamming out to the Hungry March Band, testing your Brooklyn knowledge with a Brooklyn words spelling bee and crowning the gender-neutral homecoming king and queen at a Hot for Teacher dance off, all while host/principal Scott Rogowsky, DJ Brian Blackout and special guest Danny Tamberelli keep an eye on things.

Here’s what you can win in our raffle and games, the proceeds of which go to help support the Brokelyn writers’ fund:
