Prom thank you?

My Senior daughter invited her boyfriend to her Senior prom. He is one year older and did not attend the same high school. He currently does not have a job so his mom ended up paying for the prom miscellaneous essentials. Is it customary that my daughter send a thank you note.

Dear Prom Mom,

If the circumstances of his accepting the date are known by all, then a thank you note to the mother would be ​very appropriate. Your daughter might also mention that the date was fun and ​she thinks the son is swell.​ (well you get the idea). On the other hand, if the mother's assistance was a secret, sending a note would be grossly inappropriate.
