Leeza Care Connection SENIOR PROM
April 14 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Prom isn’t just another dance. It’s a tradition, a rite of passage, a ritual that brings together people who have something in common. It creates memories that last a lifetime.
At Leeza’s Care Connection, their Senior Prom is even more than that. Celebrating Senior citizens, high school and college seniors, Senior Prom bridges the gaps between the generations. It looks at what experiences are shared and how those special moments don’t fade over time.
Irmo native Leeza Gibbons founded Leeza’s Care Connection to offer free services, programs and support to families facing a chronic illness or disease, such as Alzheimer’s, which took her mother’s life.
Gibbons says, “This is one of the sweetest and most special events we do. Our community knows the healing value of movement and dance, we know how important socialization is to preserving memories. It’s a throwback to old school values that are always in fashion. ”
This year, Gibbons says, “We will crown our first Royal Court. Those honored will be nominated and voted on by the community to recognize their joy of living at any age.”
Nominations can honor anyone who lifts others with their kindness, but the winners must be able to attend on April 14. Guests can attend as a single or a couple and “prom attire” is encouraged but not required. For more information, to buy tickets or to nominate someone for Senior Court, go to LeezasCareConnection.org or call the center at 803-888-78525.
