“It was the party of the year, put together by an army of volunteers,” a Prep spokesperson said. “Not since the actual ’80s has a party been so totally epic. There were sequins and shoulder pads, teased hair and neon. Men in ‘Miami Vice’ pastels. Cummerbunds galore. It was nothing short of totally radical.”
Emcees Phil LaMarr and Vince Ventresca were outrageous as Prince and Billy Idol. They roasted each other and toasted the honorees, parents Jeanne and Rob Case, for their service to the school. In addition to cocktails, dinner, a student-produced video and dancing, guests participated in live and silent auctions and a paddle raise, all to support Prep’s latest innovation: the soon-to-be-built three-story, 17,000-square-foot Bachmann Collaboration Building, which will house new student programs.
