Dressed in their finest, most appropriately-awkward prom garb, yelpers completed their ensemble with complimentary boutonnieres thanks to our fine hosts!
A prom in a mega retail store full of natural and organic foods might just be the most awkward place of all to host such a soirée, but the spread of fine meats, cheeses & fruits, antipasti dishes, quesadillas and assortment of desserts (fruit tarts, cannoilis, mini-cheesecakes) sure made for better-than-cafeteria fare.
At least party-goers were able to loosen up a bit (this time, legally) with glasses of Brother's Drake Mead from their newly-launched mead tap, smooth wine from Drink Ribera and an assortment of brews courtesy of Whole Foods.
All guests brought a cash donation or gently-worn or new, current styled prom gowns/bridesmaid dresses, strappy evening shoes, purses and jewelry for Fairy Goodmothers, a 501(c)(3)non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and enhancing the self-esteem of high school girls in Central Ohio.
Taking home the crown for Prom King & Queen, Martin P and Judy C, danced to a cheesy 80's ballad (thanks to the evening's on-theme DJ, George Brazil) to take home the prize of their favorite bottle of vino from the Whole Food's cellar.
If you attended, or just want to peruse everyone's feedback, reviews of the shindig can be found here.
