South Florida Teens Battling Cancer Will Lived It Up at A Prom to Remember
Attending prom is one of the greatest milestones in a teenager’s high school career. Sadly, for children battling cancer, this experience cannot always be fulfilled.
Enter The Unforgettable Prom Foundation, Inc., a not-for-profit organization that brings this magical coming-of-age occasion to youth ages 12 to 19 at its annual A Prom to Remember event. The organization’s 10th event since inception is set to take place on May 10th from 7 to 11 p.m. at The Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale.
The event will featured the Circus theme, and hosted about 200 teens from area hospitals in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach County, including Salah Foundation Children’s Hospital, Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, Baptist Children’s Hospital, Palms West Hospital, St. Mary’s Medical Center and Alex’s Place at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Guests received the royal treatment free of charge thanks to the organization’s generous donors, sponsors and other supporters. Everything from formal wear, salon services and transportation is provided. Upon arrival in luxurious limousines and motor coaches, attendees walked the crowd-lined red carpet and took photos with local celebrities. For the rest of the evening guests enjoyed dinner and dancing, entertainment, photo opportunities, and much more.
