‘Wait ’til Next Year’ stars to make appearance, look for school to host second event

Two stars of the MTV reality show  “Wait ’til Next Year” are looking for a Downriver school they can help out.
Former Lincoln Park High School football players Dakota Luna and Cody Cole will be appearing at Dearborn Heights Annapolis High School the night of Feb. 7 as part of a raffle awarding a free limousine and professional photography for prom.

The lucky grand prize-winning senior, selected at halftime of the boys’ varsity basketball game,  also will get a meet-and- greet with Luna and Cole.
Arrival Limousine/The Detailing Shop and Kendra Koman are the sponsors for the event, which the two reality stars would also like to do Downriver.
Luna and Cole would like a high school from the Downriver area to partner with them in a similar event, so
they can help raise some money for the school and meet their fans.
“It’s all about giving back, trying to help the community and having a little fun,” said Luna, who added that he didn’t consider his home base Lincoln Park High School, because he was still a senior there.
Luna, the youngest cast member of the group, said a similar event wouldn’t be as big a deal for students at Lincoln Park because he sees them every day.
At the Annapolis event, three raffle winners will be selected for  first-, second- and third-place prizes at the game, which is against Romulus Summit Academy.
“Some type of game” will then be held to pick a winner during halftime, said Luna, who added that a photographer will be on hand to shoot photos for the raffle and the subsequent competition between the three winners.
Luna hinted that he is working on securing further sponsors with possibly a local radio station and a T-shirt shop.
On the reality docu-drama, Luna was the popular lineman who battled a weight problem and fought to get in shape for his future as well as his football career.
Cole was featured caught between two relationships, one with his new girlfriend and one with his former
girlfriend, whom he remained close friends with and confided in. At the same time, his mother struggled with a drug addiction, which tore his home life asunder.
Schools that are interested can contact Luna through a private message on his Facebook page, Dakota “Lights Out” Luna.
