A High School's Prom Venue Went Out of Business at the Last Minute . . . So Now They're Having It at Dallas Cowboys Stadium
South Garland High School is just outside Dallas. And they were supposed to have their prom at a nearby event center this year. But at the last minute, the place went out of business.
So the principal started scrambling to find a new venue. And this week, she held an assembly to announce that she HAS.
It turns out several different venues offered to step in and help. So she got to choose the best one. And that ended up being the stadium where the DALLAS COWBOYS play. Which is also hosting the Final Four next weekend.
Over the past few years, the student body managed to raise about $15,000 in prom funds. And we assume renting out the whole stadium normally costs quite a bit MORE than that. But the Cowboys have offered to cover the rest of it.
The school's principal made the announcement at an assembly on Wednesday by flashing a photo of the stadium on a big screen. And there's video of it online. As you'd imagine, the students went NUTS. (Fox Sports / MyFoxDFW / CBS DFW)
