The party took place hours after Michelle gave her last public remarks as first lady. She had made a speech honoring the 2017 School Counselor of the Year and counselors from across the country in the East Room of the White House.

"I want our young people to know that they matter, that they belong," she said. "So don't be afraid—you hear me, young people? Don't be afraid. Be focused. Be determined. Be hopeful. Be empowered. Empower yourselves with a good education, then get out there and use that education to build a country worthy of your boundless promise. Lead by example with hope, never fear."
