The event, themed ‘Starry Starry Night’, was truly an occasion to remember for many who came in stunning outfits. As the emcee of the evening, Foo Chuat Meng, put it, “everyone here is a star tonight.”

The guests thoroughly enjoyed the fun-filled evening of food, friendship and music, with witty banter from Foo, entertainment by the versatile band, Traffic Lights Trio, games, and the crowning of the prom king and queen.
