Donna and Alex Crowned King and Queen at Annual “Stepping Out” Prom

June 24th, 2016

On Friday, June 24th, The Arc of Essex County crowned the annual king and queen of the 2016 Prom, themed “Stepping Out.”  Donna from Supportive Work Opportunities Program and Alex from Reach day program took home the titles.

The prom, complete with a red carpet theme, featured an afternoon of dancing, singing, food, and fun at The Embassy Suites of Parsippany.  Volunteers from Prudential assisted with prom photos as well as event set up and break down.  Anderson’s Florist in Montclair generously provided boutonnieres and corsages for all prom attendees while members of the community donated nearly 20 prom, formal, and cocktail dresses for attendees to wear.

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 2017.  Follow The Arc of Essex County on our social media channels to get a sneak peek into the 2017 prom theme!
