Movies, elegant dinner, dessert, photo booth, grammy awards and lots of pictures: also known as FC’s Night of the Stars, the most anticipated event of the year.
For the past years, FC has confided in The Grand 1401 to hold the annual NOTS event, however this year, student leadership decided to go in a new direction.
With weeks of thought the decision has been made that the 2015, 23rd annual Night of the Stars will be held at Wolf Lakes. Normally, NOTS is held in mid Feb., however, due to the change in venue, it will now be held, March 28.
Wolf Lakes is a park, privately owned and located near the foothills of Clovis. Both of the two formal locations are alongside the lake. As a result, there will be lake cruises for the students during the night, which is included in the price of the ticket.
This year, the cost per ticket will be suspected to be between $50-60. This price includes a variety of different benefits including set-up/clean-up, tables and chairs, linen tablecloths and napkins, china/stemware/flatware, service staff, appetizers, full catered dinner, lake cruises and security throughout the night.
I think NOTS is one of the most anticipated events, especially as a freshman. I’ve never been to NOTS before, so I don’t know much about The Grand 1401, but from what I’ve heard, it’s always been kind of compacted, whereas at Wolf Lakes, you can be outside with the flowers, and the lake, so I’m very excited. –Erin Wilson
Normally, NOTS at The Grand 1401 would be an evening of going up and down elevators to take pictures, and a crammed space on the top floor of the building to socialize with friends.
Student leadership advisor Vickey Belmont, gives insight into the decision for changing NOTS venues.
“We were trying to keep the cost down,” Belmont said, “we wanted the students to see and be somewhere else plus we’ve been at The Grand for multiple years so we thought a change of venue at Wolf Lakes would be nice.”
Having attended NOTS last year as a freshman, Brooklyn Ainley, ’17, is anticipating the change of venue.
“I’m excited because it looks a lot prettier, and there will be a lot more room to move around,” Ainley said.
Erin Wilson, ’18, is expecting to be experiencing NOTS for the first time this year, and moving the location makes her excitement heighten.
“I think NOTS is one of the most anticipated events, especially as a freshman. I’ve never been to NOTS before, so I don’t know much about The Grand 1401, but from what I’ve heard, it’s always been kind of compacted, whereas at Wolf Lakes, you can be outside with the flowers, and the lake, so I’m very excited,” Wilson said.
Save the date for the 2015 Night of the Stars, March 28, from 5:30-11 p.m.
