Fatihyyah and Jamal Crowned King and Queen at Annual “Mardi Gras” Prom

June 23rd, 2017

On Thursday, June 22nd, The Arc of Essex County crowned the annual king and queen during the 2017 Prom, themed “Mardi Gras.”  Fatihyyah from Opportunity Zone and Jamal from Supportive Work Opportunities Program (SWOP) took home the titles.

The prom, complete with a Mardi Gras theme, featured an afternoon of dancing, singing, food, and fun at Libretti’s in Orange.  Members of the community generously 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 2018.  Follow The Arc of Essex County on our social media channels to get a sneak peek into the 2018 prom theme!
