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!

Much Aloha,

We are raising funds for our students with special needs to have their own prom in Hawaii. As a sibling to a sister with special needs and a special needs educator for almost ten years, this event is very close to my heart. Every cent counts. You will create memories for some amazing kids! I have shared more information below about the event. Please spread the word and pay it forward.

"We are contacting you on behalf of the Autism Society of Hawaii (ASH) and the committee for “Peter’s Prom” (A Special Needs Prom), to request your support in hosting a Winter Ball for our special-needs high school students on December 7th, 2012.   

The Autism Society of Hawaii (ASH), the Children’s Community Council (CCC) and the Committee for “Peter’s Prom” (formerly The Prom Project), is interested in partnering with parents and local schools and businesses to host this year’s Winter Ball.  We are pleased to announce that we have the support of the Hyatt Regency as a venue for our event.  However, we still need our community’s help in the form of monetary donations or other assistance to make this a successful event.

The first ever special-needs prom held in Hawaii was this past spring and it was a huge success!  The Prom Project was able to garner numerous donations from the community such as the venue, decorations, a DJ, photography, flowers and catering, all of which helped ensure a wonderful event for our special-needs children. 

This Winter Ball will benefit all students with disabilities, not just those affiliated with the Autism Society of Hawaii.  It will help provide some gain the confidence to slowly build to the bigger prom and others who may not have the opportunity to make it bigger one like Peter, experience the only one they will ever know.  We are a tax-exempt organization and your donation does qualifies as a tax deduction should your organization choose to support us. A receipt will be mailed out upon receipt of your donation.

DOE complexes in South Central, North Central and Windward Oahu will all be invited to participate and each are being asked raise $250 per high school.  Each school will be able to participate even if this number cannot be reached.  The ASH and the CCC are spearheading the fundraising effort with donations of $500 each. We are happy to partner with the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls and Mrs. Hawaii for this Event and are hopeful that your organization will also consider this worthy cause in helping fundraise the remaining total of $2400."

Mahalo nui loa for your consideration.
