ASB’s expectations were exceeded in a number of ways at Galileo’s homecoming dance, “Dark Night’s, City Lights,” which was held at the Hyatt Fisherman’s Wharf on Friday, October 2nd.
One way the dance exceeded ASB’s expectations was by losing less money than expected thanks to higher attendance rates. ASB expected to about $4,000 at the homecoming dance, but surprisingly, they only loss $2,000.
For the past few years, Galileo has had two dances in the first semester, but due to low attendance and high cost, they’ve had to cut back this year. “I’m sad that we had to cut winter ball this year, but I’m happy that homecoming did so well,” ASB social vice president Ashley Moh said.
The dance also exceeded ASB’s expectations because they received a lot of positive feedback. Students really enjoyed the songs the DJ from SOS Entertainment played. There was also a free photo booth, where students could dress up with props. On the side of the room there was a dessert table, where students could have their pick of chocolate and vanilla ice cream, M&M’s, marshmallows, sprinkles, and gummy bears. “It was a night I won’t forget,” Senior Nick Trieu said.
Since Galileo didn’t hire a company to bring karaoke equipment, Ashley volunteered to bring her own equipment. “I’m glad we had karaoke because I got to sing ‘Moves like Jagger’ with my girl, Kayla Tam,” Senior Raymond Cheung said.
“It seems everyone felt that it was the best homecoming dance in recent years,” ASB advisor Mr. Wing said.
