Joy Prom

Pictured at right is of Sam Jordan, one of the 800 guests that attended the 2014 Joy Prom. The Joy Prom is a unique prom offered to individuals of all ages with special needs. Joyful Hearts LLC is a Cabarrus based nonprofit that organizes the Joy Prom. Guests came from Cabarrus County as well as other counties and states as well.

The Joy Prom treats guests as movie stars by providing a limousine ride and announcing their arrival. Guests walk down a red carpet with volunteers cheering and high-fiving them the entire way. For guests that don’t want loud clapping, volunteers acting as paparazzi lining the red carpet, use jazz hands instead. Family members can stay or relax in a hospitality room while guests can choose to eat, dance, relax or have humorous pictures made.

At the end of the night everyone leaves with a framed picture of themselves and their date if they came with one. The Joy Prom grows larger each year providing a full prom experience that leaves everyone with a huge sense of joy.
