Mom Drops Over $16K On Daughter’s Prom Arrangements

Marisela Torres said she desired to give her daughter the prom night that she was never able to have and would do it again.

A lavish prom experience for high school junior Fela Burk has ignited a heated online debate after her mother, Marisela Torres, revealed spending an astonishing $16,625 on the special occasion.

When questioned about the massive expenditure, Torres revealed a deeper sentiment, stating, “…Prom is really big in Philadelphia, but I didn’t get to go to my prom, and I’m the only one out of four that didn’t.” She added, “I know that was something my mom really, really wanted, so I just told myself that I wanted to give my daughters a big prom.”

Burk told Hall that she felt comfortable opening up to her followers and critics, explaining, “I know a lot of people were assuming we couldn’t afford it, so that was the big thing, too.” Despite the backlash, Torres commended her daughter’s gracious response, advising her, “…be positive, don’t come at anyone because we do know some people aren’t fortunate enough to have it, but just explain, we have it, we did it, and you can do the same.”

Ultimately, the mother-daughter duo agreed that the extravagant experience was worth every penny and expressed their willingness to repeat the grand affair.
