The Elyse Pantke White Foundation held the 3rd annual Forever Pink Prom at The Tower at Rice-Eccles Stadium on Feb. 26, raising $15,000 in one night for breast cancer research through the Huntsman Cancer Foundation. More than 400 guests danced to music by Complete Music and enjoyed hors d'oeuvres by Le Croissant and tasty drinks from Ketel One Vodka, Nuvo and Copper Ridge Wines. The entire venue was decked out in pink by Alliant Event Services, and guests were equally as stylish, wearing pink ties, boas, dresses and wigs to support the fight against breast cancer.
Elyse White was diagnosed with breast cancer on Nov. 14, 2003 at age 29, and after the diagnosis charity work/fundraising soon became a big part of her life. She passed away in 2008 at 34 years old. The foundation was created in her memory. Visit www.elysewhite.org for more info.
