The Dallas Cowboys won’t be playing on their home field anytime soon because of the NFL offseason, but that doesn’t mean that AT&T Stadium won’t be seeing any action.
After seniors at South Garland High School found out last week that the site where they were supposed to hold their prom had gone out of business, they were surprised early on Wednesday morning with a big announcement.
The students, 70 percent of whom come from economically disadvantaged families, found out that they would be dancing the night away at AT&T Stadium.
The venue where the prom was supposed to be held, Park Lane Events Center, still has not returned the students' $4,000 deposit. In order to raise the money for the event, the senior class has been holding fundraisers for the last three years.
"When you work hard and you do things right and you stay positive and you stay focused, you'll find out in life things usually work out better than you would expect," Principal Tracy Curtis told My Fox DFW.
The event is set to take place on April 26.
"Thanks to the outreach from the community we had lots of offers so quite frankly we got to kinda just look and see what was going to be the best place," Curtis said.
