ELC’s annual Prom took place last Friday night, on May 31st. This year, we hosted the event at O’Hara’s in Westwood from 7:00pm to 9:30pm, and reserved the whole downstairs just for ELC. With over 80 students attending along with staff and some teachers, our Prom was packed with fun and glamour.
As always, our ELC photographer was our very own James Benito. To match our Hollywood theme, we laid out a red carpet with cut outs of the Hollywood Sign against the wall to serve as the background.
While the students enjoyed taking pictures, eating, and drinking with fellow students, we also collected the final votes for Prom King and Queen. After tallying up the votes, Vanessa announced our final winners for 2013… Tobi and Capucine! After we presented them with a crown, sash, and a prize, they enjoyed their King and Queen dance and pulled down the string for our balloon drop. Students continued to enjoy the night socializing and dancing, and even stayed around after the event.
I asked for some comments from Tobi and Capucine, regarding their thoughts on Prom and becoming Prom King and Queen.
Tobi: “I appreciate that all the students chose me for their Prom King. I’m very lucky with my Prom Queen, I think she’s the best Prom Queen I’ll ever have. I hope I can do a lot in my year as King, and people can call me or text me when they have a good idea. I’m so happy to be the likeable-est student at the school! I appreciate it very much. Thank you guys, I love you all!”
Capucine added: “Prom was really really fun! Everyone was glamorous, and I’m very happy to be a Queen for Tobi. Without Tobi, I couldn’t have been Queen. “
A big thank you to all staff members for helping out before and during the event, and Tobi for being a great DJ and assistant for Prom! We hope everybody had an amazing night and got a taste of an American Prom! Check out more photos on our Facebook page.
