WHY Prom is an opportunity for the older young adults who live at St. Mary’s to spend time with their peers who do not have disabilities while experiencing a ritual of youth in America. They will wear donated dresses or tuxedos rented by St. Mary’s Auxiliary Board, which also is paying for a DJ and flowers. There will be plenty of dancing and, of course, there will be a vote for king and queen.
