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, 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, attire, and more! All of this is made possible through the generosity of our community donors and sponsors. For more information or to get involved contact us.
