It's that time of year again. Time to bust out the boutonnieres and corsages. Time to wear a tux that most likely doesn't fit you and shoes that are so shiny that they could blind your date! That's right it's PROM season. I thought specifically of TopGolf Alexandria when I saw this YouTube video of pro-golfer Lexi Thompson, asking for a special prom date--from a young man in the United States Military.
For those of you who don't know, Lexi is kind of a big deal. At age 12 the rising golf superstar was the youngest golfer ever to qualify for the US Women's Open (crazy!). More recently, Lexi tore it up at age 16 and won the LPGA event (super crazy!). Lexi is essentially my idol.
The chick is talented, young and beautiful. Not to mention she wants pay tribute to all the hard work that our military personnel do by inviting one lucky serviceman to prom. In the video she asks that an 18-20 year-old in the military sends her a photo on her Facebook or Twitter page with some reasons on why he should be chosen. The lucky guy who she picks will receive an all-expenses paid trip to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida to attend prom with her!
Now, one of the reasons of why I love working for TopGolf, especially here in DC is because we too love to find ways to honor our Military Service men and women. On Mondays we have special pricing for military personnel on games of TopGolf and we offer many discounts on memberships and events for those who serve our country. The DMV is swarming with camouflage and the sound of combat boots, especially here at TopGolf, Alexandria!
I know that there are some young, respectable, handsome, golf-loving men who would be eligible to take Lexi to prom (and who come to TopGolf all the time). Make us proud and submit your information to Lexi Thompson. When you win, make sure you remember to give TopGolf a shout out when you take the super awkward prom pose pictures!
