An Evening to Treasure is a free prom event for those affected by disabilities between the age of 15 and 21. Each of our Honored Guests receives a free prom dress or tuxedo in the weeks prior to the event. At the prom, we partner each Honored Guest with a mainstream Host of similar age to ensure their fun and safety throughout the evening. During the prom, each Guest gets their hair and makeup done by professional stylists, a tiara or crown, shoe shine, a corsage or boutonniere, formal photo, limo ride, a walk down the red carpet and celebrity wall, and of course, the dance. Inside, a live DJ provides music for everyone while Chick-fil-a provides dinner.
While this is all happening, the parents are in a different building, also being cared for and fed by volunteers who understand the challenges of disabilities and special needs children. At the end of the evening, our Honored Guests go home with a Treasure Bag full of prizes, gift cards, and the formal photo they took earlier in the night. Since all of this is free to the participants, it truly is An Evening to Treasure!
