Florida Panthers Bryan Allen, Kenndal McArdle, Alumni Billy Lindsay along with the Panthers Ice Dancers attended the first “Unforgettable Prom
” at the Ritz Carlton in Fort Lauderdale on Friday April 30th. Visit UnforgettableProm.org for more details
The prom was for more than 200 cancer patients ages 14-19 who had the chance to trade in their hospital gowns for prom dresses and tuxedos to attend this gala red carpet evening designed in their honor. The dresses, tuxedos, limos, hair, makeup, food, ballroom and gift bags were all provided free of charge.
A South Florida first, the idea for the "Unforgettable Prom" was inspired by the Friends of Scott Foundation in San Diego, an organization committed to helping families receive the needed support in dealing with this devastating disease. Friends of Scott was founded in memory of Scott Delgadillo, who lost his battle with acute lymphocytic leukemia at age 14.
Thanks to many generous sponsors and donations the teens had a night to remember!
