PORTSMOUTH — Strutting down the runway in evening attire to songs such as Lady GaGa's "Poker Face," Portsmouth High School juniors and seniors helped their sophomore peers hit the jackpot during a fashion show fundraiser at the school Saturday night.

The show netted at least $500 to offset the cost of sophomores' 2012 prom. The money was raised by about 100 students, along with their friends and family, who attended and paid $5 each for tickets. A raffle with several prizes donated by area businesses was also held.

The fundraiser was last done 12 years ago. Sophomores Aly Reardon and Liz Boynton organized it this year to help out their classmates by offsetting the cost of prom tickets, which are usually $35 a pop. They said money raised Saturday will probably bring the price down to $10.

The girls had been working on the show since January. They said it was a hectic process soliciting businesses to donate hairstyles, makeup, flowers, suits and dresses — but it all came together and the show went off without a hitch.

The show, held in the auditorium, was emceed by seniors Phil Boynton and Devin Scott.

Senior Alexandria Marousek — dressed in an open-backed, sparkling cocktail dress — and Emerson Onosko — sporting an all-white suit — drew some of biggest cheers from the crowd.

"They certainly look stunning tonight," Boynton announced to the crowd.

Class advisers Kat Anania and Dave Drukker said they were proud of Reardon and Boynton for organizing everything.

"That's why they are leaders of their class," Anania said. "They coordinated everything from getting the word out to students to soliciting business."

Dresses and suits were provided by Madeline's Event Central, Occasions Bridal and Tuxedo, Le Club Boutique, and Tuxedos with Style; makeup was provided by Joya Beauty and Hair That Moves; hairstyles were provided by Blush; limousines were provided by Great Bay Limousine; and flowers were provided by Flowers by Leslie and Ambrosia Gardens.
