I didn’t go to prom. I couldn’t; at the age of 13, I went missing and ended up living on the streets. I completely missed out on hight school and all of the milestones that come with being a teenager. I get “So Emotional” when I think about all of my “Shattered Dreams.” The loss of everyday teen things is something I have felt for most of my adult life. I learned to stop wondering what would have, could have been. Never in a million years did I dare to hope that I would get to experience prom … until now!
Thanks to the brilliance of L’Auberge Saint-Gabriel in Old Montreal, I’m finally getting my prom. We all are! And it’s not just an ordinary prom. It’s the kind of prom that will transport you back in time with 80s music, kitten heels, big hair, taffeta dresses, over-sized bows, corsages, colourful tuxedos, larger than life lapels and ruffled shirts. L’Auberge Saint-Gabriel’s Halloween is a prom circa 1988!
