Scrapbook Royalty at Prom

CHECK OUT MY PROM DATES!
Yes, there was Royalty at the Friends of Scott Prom last Friday night. 150 kids and tons of volunteers gathered at the Hall of Champions in Balboa Park, California for "A Night of a Thousand Stars" This prom is for children ages 11-19 who have battled or are battling cancer. On this night, they are not sick, they are just kids going to a milestone event in a young person's life. Some of these kids are too sick to go to their own prom, or embarrassed and some sadly do not live to go to their prom. That is what makes this so special and such a worthy cause. SBR volunteers Dawn T, Jennifer T, Jessica P, Julie M and Elena decorated 200 goodie bags for these courageous kids and their dates. It is a major event with food, entertainment and lots of laughs!



There was even an 80's style dance-off with some really talented dancers!














Jennifer T, Julie M, and Elena attended the prom to pass out the goodie bags. One thank you from one of these brave kids makes all the work worth it
How do you thank Sponsors? Tell every one about them!!
FloraCraft donated 200 awesome styrofoam stars for us to alter for the goody bags! We can't do this without generous companies like FloraCraft.
