Peter's Prom was an amazing success! We raised $1,000, many dresses were donated, boys were fitted in tuxedos, girls had professional hair and makeup, food was wonderful, loving volunteers came out, the kids danced the night away, a photo booth was so much fun, and all had a fun night.
I want to thank you all for helping us create our dreams! Remember that paying it forward is beautiful!
Many Mahalos to Patricia Nevada for your generous donation! We are now only $45 away from reaching our $1,000 goal for Peter's Prom. Just three more days till our Special Needs dance.

We have almost reached $1,000! How amazing!
Updating information for Peter's Prom. So excited for this amazing event for our students with special needs in Hawaii. Overwhelmed and elated with the support coming in from all over the nation!
It started off with raising just $250 for my students to go to the dance next month. We have almost TRIPLED this number. Amazing volunteers and donators are making this most special night ever by offering their support. We now have a team of talented makeup artists and hair stylists, photography, tuxedos donated to all the boys, volunteers at the dance, etc.
Words cannot express how HAPPY my students were when I told them all this wonderful news. I have always told them BELIEVE IT and ACHIEVE IT!
Please feel free to share your with your friends and family our fundraiser page. All proceeds go to Autism Society in America in Hawaii's Peter's Prom!
If you are interested in volunteering at the dance, please contact me via Facebook or firstname.lastname@example.org.
