Special Olympics Montgomery County,                                        Pennsylvania

 An all-volunteer organization where athletes are first!


One of my favorite coaches (Coach Melanie from Track & Field and Long Distance Running) shared this event invitation to our athlete community. Although it is not sponsored by Special Olympics it is quite an event (and free!). Her church in King of Prussia (Hope Community Church) has been selected by the Tim Tebow Foundation to host a prom for people with special needs (ages 16 and up). The event will be on Friday, February 12, 2016 from 6pm-9pm.

This will be an unforgettable prom experience filled with SO much fun- red carpet entrance, friendly paparazzi, limo rides, karaoke, games, prizes, dinner and of course DANCING! And the best part is that it is completely FREE!!
