Back to Prom

Kim and I are Social Media and Marketing interns at Frungillo Caterers. We’ve been working on many of the company’s social media sites – including this blog! Kim is completing her B.A. in Communication at Bloomsburg University and I am working towards my B.A. in Journalism and Media Studies at Rutgers University.

We didn’t know each other before coming to Frungillo Caterers, but it turns out we do have som interesting things in common. Kim and I are both from North Jersey. Kim is from Verona and I’m from Montville (only a few miles away from each other). We both have previous experience working in the hospitality industry at local restaurants. Last but certainly not least, we both had our respective high school senior proms hosted by Frungillo Caterers in the Grand Ballroom at The Villa at Mountain Lakes.

Earlier this month, Frungillo Caterers hosted many proms at The Villa at Mountain Lakes and Skylands Manor for high schools including Indian Hills, Hackettstown, Montclair Kimberly Academy, and Hasbrook Heights to name a few. Kim and I relived prom by shadowing the culinary and event planning staff behind the scenes at two of these proms. We saw how the magic happens from creative cocktail hours to last dances that will never be forgotten. Going back to prom as interns has been just one of our highlights so far this summer.
