Lights, camera, smiles!
On Friday, May 18th at Council Rock High School South, Autism Cares Foundation held their annual prom. This year, our special friends were treated to "A Night at the Oscars!"
Teens and Young Adults with autism and other special needs enjoyed an evening full of A-list glitz and glamour. A few hours prior to the event, special guests were given an oscar-worthy hair & makeup treatment by Stephanie Mishler and her non-profit, Home By Midnight.
The party began with a delicious dinner, by B&T Catering. After feeding their appetites, guests went out on the dance floor to show us their best moves to tunes provided by Dolan DJs. Forming new and old groups of friends, they then made their way over to our photographer for the evening from Kosola Productions to have a formal photo taken, which was then printed for a take-home memento. Check out some of these candid shots captured by our roaming photographer, Lisa Varley!
It was a night to remember, and a blast! We thank all of our hard-working staff and volunteers who helped transform the cafeteria with their creativity, and who got out on the dance floor to boogie with our special friends! A very special thank you goes to the Autistic Support Class at Council Rock High School North, who provided beautiful centerpieces for us!
A few parents echoed the same sentiment as the evening began. They expressed how much it meant to them to see their child with special needs attend a prom just like their other, typical siblings. We enjoy hosting our annual prom, to enrich the lives of those with autism and other special needs, and look forward to next year!
