We just had our last YoungLives event of the year…PROM! We’ve gone through New Years to Christmas together and to wrap it up, we all gather together to celebrate the young moms and dads that graduated. This year the theme was Hollywood, awesome right? All the girls came dressed beautifully ready to party!
From the babies being well taken care of in childcare, to an amazing live band, photo booth with a professional photographer, raffles, dj, and great food served to them, I’m sure the girls felt great to be treated like the queens they all are.
The night started off with the girls walking the red carpet as paparazzi snapped photos of them, which was my favorite part ,seeing how happy they were. Ok, so after the red carpet it was dinner time! The girls were seated and served dinner by youths dressed in all black. How great is that? Taking a break from babies, sitting down and having amazing volunteers cater to you. I helped serve food too, butter to be exact,yes BUTTER for a bit then my heels told me have a seat haha. While having dinner, a band played, Rocky’s Revival and they were amazing. To continue the night, Myrna shared with us that God is our strength and how great it felt being there this year as a mother herself.
PROM QUEENS! This is the time we honor the girls who have worked hard this year and graduated. Each girl was given a certificate and “prom queen” sash then crowned. After that, we did raffles and there were some pretty cool prizes. One of the girls won 3 tickets to Disneyland, another a custom phone case and much more was given.
To wrap up the night, there was an open candy bar for dessert, my FAVORITE part!!! At the end of the night everybody put on their dancing shoes and danced the night away!!
