St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital’s Annual Prom serves pediatric patients who are unable to attend their own prom due to hospitalization or who, due to life-limiting illness, will most likely never get the opportunity. The Hospital’s Prom is traditionally an all-day affair. Beginning in the early afternoon, patients arrive at the hospital or are escorted from their rooms to begin their day of pampering. Professional hair and wig styling, taffeta-layered and jewel-adorned prom dresses, tuxedo fittings, fragrant corsages and doting makeup artists make this event everything that a traditional prom would be. That is, of course, except for the attendees. These special kids, whose everyday life is filled with a multitude of physical and emotional tests, get to be normal for one precious day.
This event is free of cost for our patients and their guests, and includes complimentary hair and makeup, dresses, and more! All of this is made possible through the generosity of our community donors and sponsors. For more information or to get involved, please contact us.
On Friday, May 4th, 2018, the children at St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital channeled their inner Jedi for an intergalactic “May the Fourth Be with You” Prom. The Medical Arts Building Auditorium was complete with Star Wars themed décor including the Death Star Deck, Millennium Falcon Cockpit, a Droid Repair Shop and Light Sabers. The day kicked off with the kids picking out their donated attire and had their hair, makeup, and nails done by local artists. The stellar event had everyone dancing the night away, making precious memories with plenty of giggles.
