Prom Season! What a magical time in the life of every high school student – from picking out the dress or tuxedo to hitting the dance floor with friends! The Starry Night Prom started in 2008 with the idea to create a once-in-a-lifetime prom experience for Arlington ISD high school students with significant disabilities who attend a high school campus full-time.
Taking the vision from AISD special education teacher Sara Mayo, Chase Christensen developed his Eagle Scout project around creating the Starry Night Prom, along with Boy Scout Troop #396 and the Arlington Elks Lodge #2114. Now an annual event, the Starry Night Prom is heading into its twelfth year of throwing an all- inclusive prom! Students with significant disabilities and their chaperone are treated to beautiful invitations to attend prom, a sit-down dinner, professional photography, corsages and boutonnieres, dessert fountain, a prom king and queen, goodie bags, and, of course, a huge dance floor
with a DJ, all at no cost to the student or their chaperone! Would you please consider donating to the Starry Night Prom 2019?
Over 300 people attended Starry Night Prom 2018! In-kind donations are needed in every area, from items for prom “goodie bags” to food to serve 300. Financial donations of any amount are also needed, as 100% of all financial donations go to purchasing items for the Starry Night Prom. A tax-deductible receipt will follow your donation, as will a public thank you letter supplied to all prom attendees and donors, with varying signage and sponsorship mentions dependent on the level of donation.
Thank you for making an incredible night for students with significant disabilities a reality by supporting Starry Night Prom!
