Still seeing pink after dancing the night away at The Forever Pink Prom at The Tower at Rice Eccles Stadium on Saturday night.
The Tower was packed with guests, including myself and our photographer Elliott Fraughton, whose photos will be posted on our photos page (his are better).
Elyse Pantke White died at 34 of breast cancer, and the Elyse Pantke White Foundation was the brainchild of her husband, Ross White. Honoring Elyse, the foundation raises money for cancer research, including the Huntsman Cancer Institute to help find a cure for the disease.
The Forever Pink Prom raises a good portion of those proceeds going toward curing cancer.
“We’re hoping to make the fourth annual prom as successful as year’s past,” said Ross White before the party went underway. Not long after, the tower filled with people wearing pink and some in fancy costume (two guys wore the blue and orange tuxes from Dumb & Dumber).
White is part of a committee of ten, along with Elyse’s sister Andrea, who made the event happen. They also worked with Brighter Day Productions to make sure everything went smoothly. And the event was catered by Le Croissant (loved the tiny baklava bites).
Here are some photo highlights from the event—check out our photos page for more.
