Category Archives: Riley Hospital for Children Prom

A MAGICAL NIGHT

This event was one of the most amazing events I’ve ever been a part of. The first ever Riley Children’s Hospital Prom was a great collaboration with the Women of Riley, the Riley staff and many many generous vendors. Everyone really pulled resources, time and funds to make this night special for the cancer patients and families of Riley.

First, the children were treated to “Promingdales” where they were able to pick out their dresses and tuxes for the special night.

There were over 400 dresses and tuxes donated and a local dry cleaner dry cleaned every last dress for free.

The main room was full of lots of great music by Party Time Sound, cool lights and lounges by Evans Audio Visual and a special guest DJ—Scott Evans himself.

The kids had a blast. It was so nice to see them being kids and having fun.

One of the nurses said that some of the kids were up at 5:00am that morning because they were so excited.


Setting the Mood provided decor and A Classic Party rental donated the beautiful linen, tables and chairs.

The other half of the venue was geared towards the younger kids with a Harry Potter theme. Some of the children were transported from the hospital to the party on the “People Mover” turned Hogwarts Express.

Complete with a potions lab.
