Masquerade Prom
SBAIN is proud to be co-sponsoring the 3rd Annual Masquerade Ball Prom that is absolutely free for individuals with special needs ages 16 and older that will be held on Saturday May 21, 2016 at White River Christian Church in Noblesville, IN.  The prom is a Masquerade Ball so it is a formal event.   You can start the evening off with a make-over! We will do hair, nails, and make-up as well as provide suits and dresses if you don’t happen to have something that makes you feel extra special.  

After you are looking your best, you will be given a boutonniere or corsage to bring out that extra something special and given a chance to have your picture taken. Prom is a great event and it doesn’t end with friends and dancing. Drinks and appetizers will be available throughout the evening and a King and Queen will be crowned.
