January 24, 2009, a Saturday, was another exciting day for BB. This day he attended the Senior Ball at his high school! “I didn’t think I’d ever get another chance to go to a school dance, but I asked management and they gave the ok and made time in the schedule for me to go. I had soooo much fun! For our day activity, we had breakfast and then played games. We fit in a lot of them too. We played dodge ball, basketball, musical chairs, apples to apples, and crab soccer. I got a good work out from the crab soccer too haha. We rocked out at the dance too, and even though I sweat so bad it was worth it.
The girl I got to go with was awesome too”, as he said.
This day, January 28, Larissa Cheong, from Singapore, won the MyFOX Utah auction to have a dinner with David Archuleta with a final bid of $4,300. 00!, which will greatly benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of South Valley.
