Olympic snowboarder Shaun White made one high school student in Pennsylvania very happy over the weekend when he surprised her at her senior prom.
Carly Monzo, who attends Mount Saint Joseph Academy in Flourtown, Pa. had sent an invitation to White a couple of months ago. When she didn’t hear back, she likely wrote it off as something that was too far-fetched to actually come true.
However, on Friday night, she explained the events that unfolded before getting a surprise of a lifetime.
“At prom they called me up. They were like ‘Carly Monzo, where’s Carly Monzo?’ And I was like ‘oh my goodness, what did I do?’ I literally thought I was in trouble,” she told CBS Philly. “It was crazy. On the stage that was there — they just dropped the curtains. I turned around. I was speechless.”
Not only did Monzo get to dance with White, with the approval of her prom date of course, but his band Bad Things performed for the high school students as well.
White took to Twitter to show some pictures from the night, using the hashtag #promcrashers. “Hey @carlymonzo #promcrashers #badthings #ShaunSaidYes,” he first wrote, showing off a photo of himself dressed up in a tux.
