8th Annual Squaw Valley Prom

If you want to return to the 80’s for just a moment, or relive your prom days (no matter the era), dig out your most authentic attempt at an 80’s costume, find a date (or go stag) and party down with other prom-goers on February 25th at the Squaw Valley Prom!

All proceeds benefit High Fives Non-Profit Foundation.  High Fives Non-Profit Foundation is a Tahoe-based 501.c.3 non-profit organization dedicated to raising money and awareness for athletes who have suffered a life-altering injury while pursuing their dream in the winter action sports community.

To keep the party going, DJ Solomon will headline, with guest DJ Trick Master Fly  and special guest DJ Silver Boombox Theif.  Prom runs from 8pm-2am at the Squaw Valley Olympic House, so you’ll have plenty of time to compete for the top three prizes:

  • Best 80’s Music Costume
  • Best 80’s Movie Costume
  • Best 80’s Pop Icon Costume

This year over 300 guests will be greeted by a Hollywood-style red carpet entry, swanky champagne and hors d’oeuvre receptions.  Black Tie & Tails Gala is replete with music, dancing, an auction and even unexpected entertainment!  So be sure to grab your glitzy leash and throw on your formal gown for a one-of-a-kind event celebrating community, canines and compassion.
