Pace welcomes alumni for first Annual Prom

 

Monsignor Edward Pace High School (Pace) welcomed back 54 years of Spartan alumni to their alma mater on Saturday, June 2 for their first-annual Alumni Prom.

A total of 200 attendees arrived to a red carpet treatment for a Hollywood-themed evening in the school’s beautifully transformed Spartan Center. Among the glow of red and amber lights, guests were treated to a night of amazing food, cocktails and dancing. 

The purpose of the of the event was simple, to bring back a sense of alumni community dating back to the school’s first graduating class of 1964 through present day. Those in attendance enjoyed an evening of fun and nostalgia with their former classmates and teachers 

At the start of the evening, principal Ana Garcia took a few moments to welcome the crowd back to their beloved high school. Additionally, she announced that the evening also served as a celebration to the end of a fantastic day for Pace, since the school’s baseball team had been victorious in winning the State Championship only hours prior. 

Guests mingled and enjoyed delicious pastries courtesy of Vicky Bakery as well as Cuban ‘cafecitos’ made by Pace’s beloved Spanish teacher for over 20 years, Dr. Celita Cabrera.

Festivities went into overdrive with the start of the “Hora Loca” celebration as party enthusiasts entered the space with feather headdresses and beautifully lit costumes while a bongo player filled the air with a lively rhythm, inviting the crowd on to the dance floor. 

As the night continued, giant LED robots holding CO2 fog machines arrived while guests posed for photographs. Herff Jones Miami sponsored a fun photo booth with props allowing guests to take home a fun photo memento of their evening back at Pace.

The school hopes to establish this as an annual tradition for many years to come in an effort to unite Spartan alumni from across all of the decades. For more information about Alumni events or class reunions, contact the school’s Alumni office at alumni@pacehs.com or 305-623-7223 ext. 213.
