SPARTA, Mich.-- Chief organizer Renee Wyman says an "army of volunteers" is getting ready to pull off the "Best Prom Ever" this Saturday, March 1 at Sparta High School.
In its ninth year, the dance for people with special needs has grown from from a group of 16 young adults with mild cognitive impairments to more than 380 young adults from across West Michigan, who plan to attend this Saturday.
More than 198 volunteers have signed up to help pour punch, carry dinner trays, wash dishes, and any other task that needs to be done to make the event truly enjoyable for the students. Donations are also pouring in the community, including dinner table rentals, linen rentals, red carpet rentals, donated desserts and limo rides and much more
“I cry every day with gratitude not only from the donations from Sparta but also from other surrounding communities,” says Wyman.
