Day Programs Attend Second Annual Shining Stars Prom

June 26th, 2015

On Tuesday, June 23rd, The Arc of Essex County crowned the annual Prom king and queen during the 2015 Prom themed “Shining Stars.”  Charles McKinney from Community Link and Nikita Brown from SWOP took home the titles.

The prom featured an afternoon of dancing, singing, food, and fun at The Nutley Parks and Recreation Building.  Volunteers from Prudential helped set up, serve lunch, and brought their enthusiasm to the dance floor.  Additionally Anderson’s Florist in Montclair provided boutonnieres and corsages for all prom attendees while Petracca and Sons catered a portion of the food.

This annual event offers approximately 100 day program participants the opportunity to enjoy a traditional prom experience.  The highly anticipated event will return in June 2016.  Follow The Arc of Essex County on our social media channels to get a sneak peek into the 2016 prom theme!
