What is ‘A Night to Remember’?
A night to remember is a prom night put on every spring for special needs students through out San Diego County. They get a first class experience with this prom! Every boy gets a tuxedo and every girls gets a dress, along with a limo ride and red carpet. This golf tournament was put on to help raise funds for all these special needs students to have the absolute best prom!
How many people attend this event?
Currently the prom has over 800+ students that attend! Half of the attendees are students with special needs, who they call their “Honored Guests”, and they partner them with an “able-bodied” student from an area school, which they call their “Hosts”. The event keeps on growing every year that they put it on!
How has this event made an impact on the community?
Not only does this event bring great joy to the special needs students who attend but it also brings pure happiness to the “hosts”. Friendships and long lasting bonds are created through this event! On prom night, dancing and fun knows no disability. One of the prom’s Hosts captured it best in the May 2014 USA Today article featuring the event – “It’s the greatest feeling and the most incredible thing I have ever done…It’s like any other high school dance if you minus the awkwardness and multiply the happiness.”
