National Prom Day: The Perfect Prom That Brings Joy To Teens Who Need It Most
A night full of joy is just what these strong, deserving teens need! 'No Worries Now' is a 501(c)3 nonprofit whose mission is to improve the well being of teens with life-threatening illnesses. The organization holds annual proms so these teens can have a magical night of dancing, dress up, pampering and fine dining.
Since 2007, 'No Worries Now' has held annual proms in Los Angeles, as well as additional proms in San Francisco, Sacramento, and Washington, D.C. These proms are 100% free for participants, and attract up to 500 teen patients and their guests to exciting venues like Sony Pictures Studios and Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. Proms include a red carpet photo shoot, catered gourmet dinner, free prom dresses and shoes and celebrity appearances (such as Twilight's Anna Kendrick and High School Musical's Monique Coleman), shout-out videos from stars like Snoop Dogg and will.i.am, and an unforgettable night where teen patients can forget their worries and just dance for one night. It's not just an event, it's magic!
