Dad Defends Spending $6 Million On His Daughter's Quinceanera
Maya Henry celebrated with 600 guests and two $20,000 dresses.
A Texas teenager’s Quinceanera cost her family $6 million.
Maya Henry celebrated her 15th birthday three weeks ago with an extravagant party that featured performances from Pitbull and Nick Jonas.
There were 600 guests and the birthday girl wore two dresses that cost $20,000 each.
Maya and her dad, Thomas, a personal injury lawyer and philanthropist, spoke to IE.
“I was in awe 'cause I did not expect it to be that grand,” she said. “I was just shocked at how good the planning was.”
Thomas did have his share of critics and responded to them head on.
“People have said, 'How could you spend this much money on an event?' but as a professional, I have fed thousands and thousands and thousands of people, I have provided free education to people, health care, so you have to take certain comments with a grain of salt,” he said.
In one respect at least, the young woman who had the $6 million party is just like every other 15-year-old.
She said the best part of the night didn’t include glitz and glamour but was dance she shared with her father. “That's a really special moment in my life,” she said.
