What is Evening of Dreams Goal?
Our goal is to reach out to the special needs community in a tangible way. Evening of Dreams is a red carpet event for teens and young adults with disabilities complete with formal wear, photographers and dancing. The goal is to create a prom experience with the ability to provide for a variety of special needs. Our guests enjoy an escort throughout the evening as well as the opportunity for formal pictures, music, and refreshments.
What can I expect at Evening of Dreams?
Evening of Dreams is a prom for special needs students who don’t normally get to go to prom. Limousines, tuxedos, prom dresses, dinner, dancing, and karaoke were just some of the reasons lives were impacted. Some of the attendees face daily challenges of autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy (CP) and many other disabilities. Once the music starts, they hit the dance floor and never leave. The one thing that was abundantly clear, is that when given a chance, when included, kids will just be kids. They all eat together, talked together, danced together, sang together and created a night of dreams together.
