For the very first time, "A Night to Remember" prom for those with special needs held in Milwaukee County

MILWAUKEE COUNTY -- For the first time, a prom for young adults with special needs was held in Milwaukee County. We're told many who took part in the prom didn't want to leave, and parents of those who took part had tears in their eyes after seeing the joy on their children's faces.

"A Night to Remember" prom was held at The Ridge Community Church on Saturday, May 30th -- near Highway 100 and Layton Avenue.

The goal for this free event was to honor, love and celebrate 100 individuals with special needs (ages 15-24) by throwing them a party.

Tuxes and gowns were provided, as well as professional makeup and hairstyles.

The young adults who took part got to take a limo ride to the "Red Carpet" event which included "paparazzi" and more than 250 people cheering them on.

Each honored guest had two hosts for the night, with 165 hosts in all -- from 18 local high schools and 10 local colleges.

For the last two years, the "Night to Remember" prom has been held in Racine.
