The Story

Djanai's Angels is organizing our third annual Special Needs Family Prom to be held at Studio 11 in Los Angeles, CA in June 2016. This event welcomes over 100 families with students of all abilities from different schools all over California. Our mission is to provide special needs guests attending the prom, free of charge, a tuxedo/suit or prom dress, a coursage or boutinniere, a ride in a limousine, a walk down the grassy carpet, a day of dining and dancing, live entertainment, a gift bag and special memories that will last a lifetime.

Most of our special guests are unable to attend and enjoy Prom for various reasons.  Our Special Family Prom offers these students the accessible accommodations and assistance needed in order to fully enjoy a milestone that they otherwise would miss. This event also allows loved ones the ability to share in such a magical day.

The average cost to go to a High School Prom is between $500 to $900. Our event allows students the opportunity to experience Prom for roughly $150.

Thanks to your donation you are giving a child and their loved ones access to an unforgettable experience. 100% of donations are used to offset the cost of Prom and benefit inClusion ClubHouse. ALL donations are tax deductible. For more information visit: www.inclusionclubhouse.org

#WishWednesday I wish that we could raise enough money to send all our special needs students and their families to Prom for FREE!!  Prom is less than 20 days away and we need your help.  Without donations from family, friends and our community it is sad to say we are unable to give every family more than 1 free ticket.  Please help me change this as I am getting requests from many families who would love to attend but can not afford to.  Let's make this day special for everyone.  Every little bit helps.  Thank you!

Prom is 25 days away and we need your help!!  Please help us make sure our special needs families get to enjoy this extra special day.  Unfortunately most children with special needs like Djanai don't get to experience Prom like their general ed peers. Proms are typically organized by the seniors and a group of teachers and because they aren't surrounded by children of different needs they don't know how to account for or accommodate these needs many times making it impossible for them to attend Prom.  Most times they forget to invite the seniors who are in the special day program as in Djanai's case this year.

Djanai is a senior and this year I found out about Prom right before it happened and it was too late. I thank God that I have a core group of friends who help me make sure we make Prom happen for our special kids.  Can I count on you to help make sure Djanai gets to go to Prom her Senior Year??  Every little bit helps, whatever that is will make a difference in a child's life. 

Djanai's H.S. Senior Prom ticket this year would've cost $90 for dinner, a few hours of dancing and lifelong memories created with classmates.  For Seniors ONLY.
Special Needs Family Prom ticket is $50 includes food, live entertainment, themed characters, arts & crafts, Prom Photos, new memories and friendships created that will last a lifetime. For the WHOLE Family.

We are so sad that we had to postpone Prom until June but we are excited that it will now give us the opportunity to raise enough money to make sure that this day is nothing short of spectacular for our special needs guests and their families.  Our goal has always been to provide our special needs families with a free prom experience, however, where we have not raised all the money needed we are only able to give away a limited amount of tickets.  Please help us make this a day that all of our families have access to.  Every little bit helps, skip the Starbucks or fast food for a week and donate $20 to help a child attend prom.  Thank you for your help, kindness and support!
