TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — With prom season right around the corner, Eegee's wanted to play role in a seniors promposal.

Eegee's tweeted a few weeks ago offering their helping hand for promposals.

Ramiro Valencia, a senior at Sahuaro High School (SHS), quickly jumped on Eegee's promposal opportunity to ask his girlfriend Leah Cielo to prom.
"I honestly cant wait to see her reaction," says Valencia.

Eegee's senior engagement manager, Gabriel Oropeza, said, "after hearing Ramiro's story, we definitely wanted to hop on board with him, it was a no-brainer.”

On a Wednesday afternoon, he gathered all her friends and asked them to wear t-shirts spelling out P-R-O-M?

Ramiro held a sign that reads, "My goal is to kick it with you at prom!"

Leah made her way to Eegee’s on Broadway with her parents and got the surprise of a lifetime.

Eegee’s helped coordinate the whole thing and got Ramiro ready for the big moment. Valencia says, "they helped me game plan, get ready, and motivate me, make me not as nervous.”

Leah said yes, with tears in her eyes. She added, "this is probably like the nicest thing that’s been done for me.”

Eegee’s has always been a special place for the young couple. Valencia said, "we've been dating for two years now and Eegees was our first date.”
