Class of 2017 to host “A Royal Knight” themed promEvent will take place on May 14
The Class of 2017 is hosting the “A Royal Knight” themed prom at the Emerald at Queensridge from 7-10 p.m. on May 14.
“We [Class of 2017] wanted a special theme that would be memorable and we narrowed it down to ‘A Royal Knight’,” Class of 2017 President Demitri Bannoura said. “The theme goes great with our motto, ‘The Kings and Queens of 2017.'”
Students must present their student identification card in order to purchase tickets to the event. Outside participants must be under 21 years of age and complete a guest pass, which are available in room D105 and the library.
“The venue itself is very nice and fits the theme perfectly,” Class of 2017 adviser Veronica Whiton said. “We will also be finalizing the prom decorations next week.”
A fire sale for tickets will take place from May 2-3 and students who purchase the $55 ticket will be automatically entered into an opportunity drawing for various gifts and other items. The ticket price will then increase to $60 for the week of May 4-13. Tickets will be on sale for $70 at the door.
“The grand prize for the [opportunity drawing] is going to be a chance to win a free ticket to the dance,” Bannoura said. “It’s a great deal because the winning student can then get their money refunded.”
Nominations for prom court will take place during the week of May 2-6 for $1 in the lunch room. The elected court will be decided through online voting and royalty will be crowned on the night of the event.
