Bridge School Program's Prom a Memorable One
Harrison Rising - 5/6/2017
The Bridge School, a division of Cerebral Palsy of Westchester, hosted its end-of-the-year prom April 28 in honor of five graduating students. Three of the school classrooms gathered together for the event, which included family, friends and staff. The gym was decorated with the theme "Hollywood" by LifeTime Events by Jacquelyn, and Nova Original Events.
The students enjoyed a red carpet entrance while stopping to strike a pose for the photographer. A special entrance was made by the graduating students, as prom kings and queens wearing crowns and sashes. Musical performances were given by CPW's Vocal Groove, a duo of student and staff, and the guest guitarist was Matty D.
Everyone was dressed up and enjoyed lunch, dessert, and dancing to music. The students had fun taking pictures in the photo booth and eating cotton candy.
"The prom was a second-to-none event for our kids, and it's exactly what they deserved," said Division Director of Children's Services Michael Musante. "Many thanks to all the staff for making the day a memorable one."
A special "thank you" was expressed to donors Cermele's Corporate Catering, Chubby Rental, Corbos at Belle Fair, Don Coqui, Elks Lodge, Fiorentinos Pizzeria, HVE Associates, LifeTime Events by Jacquelyn, Longford's Own-Made Ice Cream, Matty D Guitarist and Entertainment, Nova Original Events, Nyce Productions, Operation Prom, Strike A Pose Foto Booth, and Summit Cafes.
