Dying teen is too ill to attend prom, so prom comes to her.

Dying teen is too ill to attend prom, so it comes to her hospital bed

6 hrs ago

Fourteen-year-old Katelyn Norman doesn’t have much time left. Doctors say osteosarcoma, a form of bone cancer, will soon take the Tennessee teen’s life. But it hasn’t stolen all her chances to experience the joys of being young — including the prom. Katelyn hoped she’d be well enough to attend a personalized prom at her school Tuesday night, but that afternoon she had trouble breathing and had to be hospitalized. Her friends and family rallied, bringing the event to her hospital room, where her date presented her with a corsage and a “Prom Queen” sash. Katelyn insisted that the prom at school proceed without her: “She contacted me and said prom must go on — that’s her, and you can’t help but feed off that energy, that life,” said the organizer.

Thursday May 26th, 2011 – Just weeks ago, thousands of dollars were stolen from teenagers who thought they had booked with a reliable” party bus company to transport them to and from their High School prom. The teens had paid the money for the buses up front, and on the night of their prom, after waiting for hours in their dresses and tuxes, found they had been scammed not only out of their money, but out of their prom night. The worst part is that they weren’t the only ones. Multiple other High School kids also found they had been stranded and left with no ride to their Prom.

Please click this link to watch the KUSI News report about the Party Bus Company that “Never Showed Up.”

We wanted to share this information to emphasize the importance of doing adequate research before booking and paying (especially up front) a party bus company. These days people will do some pretty sketchy stuff to scam you for your money. If a price or “deal” seems too good to be true, it most likely is.

Here at Seattle Party Bus, we run a reliable and credible business that puts customer service first, above all else. Our proof of insurance and permits are visible to the public, and anyone who is looking to book with Seattle Party Bus is more than welcome, and encouraged, to come down to our office and view the buses for themselves. Once at our location, you will be introduced to our staff and we will provide you with the utmost reliable, dependable customer service.

Don’t wait until the night of your next big event to find that you’ve been a part of a scam.


Prom Night

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

IF the title, “THS Investi gates: Prom Nightmares,” has you thinking “big fat, hot prom mess” with overweight girls bulging out of their too-tight prom dresses and boys in horrifyingly tasteless tuxedos, pimp hats and red shoes – may I suggest you find your kicks on the Internet.

Tonight’s episode of “THS” is not fun, and it’s not silly.

It’s the deadly business of kids who have been killed and maimed on prom night – and it ain’t pretty. But it is important.

In case you’ve been off ice road trucking in Alaska and missed it, the average American prom has morphed from a dress-up school dance to an out-of-control blow-out complete with its own industry that vies with Sweet 16 parties and bar mitzvahs as events so expensive parents take out second mortgages just to survive it.

Aside from the excess (some kids spend “between $30,000 and $40,000” on their prom “necessities,” the show says), the great American prom is increasingly becoming a deadly affair.

“Prom Nightmares” visits the families who lost kids in car accidents, who have committed suicide on prom night, died from bad drugs and even the story of one girl who fell four stories off a hotel balcony after an alcohol-induced blackout (and survived).

It is terrifying.

For starters, there’s the story of Jillian Sabet, a girl who was elected both prom queen and class president on the day of the prom – and who was killed on her way to the dance when the car she was traveling in flipped over. No drugs – but no seatbelts, either.

Cathy Isford died on prom night after doing Ecstasy. Thirty-seven other kids took Ecstasy that night, but only Cathy got sick and died from it.

Chris Davidson, a triple-threat athlete on the eve of being honored for his role in starting a lacrosse team in his school, hung himself with his belt in his after-prom hotel room. And his heartbroken father is still trying to figure it out.

One bit of advice: if you are planning on attending the prom or have kids who are going to one, please make them watch this show. It will scare them so straight, they’ll stay home and rent a movie instead.
