Clients arrived for the Hollywood-themed event dressed in tuxes and prom dresses. They entered the prom on a red carpet, ready for a night of music and dancing.

JOYCE WOLTER – Parent: "Rebecca got her dress and was all excited she wore it for over and hour and a half and wouldn't take it off just like a typical teenager would. And she was very excited got her hair done, got a corsage and it's just been a fun event for her to plan for and be excited about."

CCRI serves more than 300 people with disabilities in the area.
