The Triangle Elite Squad Class of 1989 gathered for a 5-Star(ry) Nights-themed prom last Friday. Butt bows, "I love the Go Gos" buttons, leg warmers, side ponies, and rat tails were all the rage! And from Pretty in Pink to Beetlejuice, from goth to casual, the 80s were well represented! As Erin W yelped, "If you can't have fun with a bunch of yelpers doing 'the cabbage
patch' dressed in 80s regalia, then you need to check yourself 'fore
you wriggity-wreck yo'self! This event was RAD to the MAX. I almost
took off a star because I wish it lasted a bit longer!" Aw, we loved hanging out – and acting like 80s fools – with you too!
Yelpers arrived in the beautiful from-the-future modern lobby at Cambria Suites where the gals were greeted with a long-stemmed red rose and everyone took a Prom King & Queen ballot. Do-good yelpers donated to our non-profit partner, the Southeast German Shepherd Rescue, for a chance to enter our raffle; they raised $75 for the cause! Of course, photo ops abounded for couples at both the formal portrait corner and with All-Points Transportation, who provided chauffeured rides from the pre-prom dinner to the party!
Cambria treated everyone to yummy buffalo chicken tenders, fruit and cheese, and spinach dip. And Rain Vodka spiked our punch perfectly! Some yelpers enjoyed discounted hotel rooms – and free breakfast – with their dates. And everyone enjoyed Island Sound DJs who provided an amazing mix of songs that got folks on their feet. Frankie even emceed an impromptu prom court line-up to help everyone determine their votes for king and queen. Congrats to Nikki K and Ron W who took the crowns and reigned on high!
A huge thanks to Lisa, Victoria, Rachel and Yogesh at Cambria Suites, to Rain Vodka, All-Points, and Island Sounds for making this a prom night to remember! If you didn't get a chance to talk to SGSR, please take a moment to visit their website; you can even make a donation to help save dogs here!
Until next time, SYOY!
