Joy Prom celebrates 6 years of making people smile with special needs

JOHNSON CITY, TN (WJHL) – From tiaras, to crowns and horse-drawn carriages, a group of people with special needs were given their own night to shine.

Grace Fellowship Church held its 6th annual Joy Prom Friday night and attendance was more than one thousand people.

Event organizer Becca Foxx said, “It’s a prom for individuals with special needs and their families and caregivers and it is just an absolute blast.”
The crowd attended the event, saying they felt they were being treated like superstars.

“I like it because of all the people that know me here and I’m a celebrity”, said prom attendee Rachel Pickel.

The event even had a red carpet entrance where attendees received cheers and also got stopped by paparazzi for a quick photo or two.

The goal of tonight’s event was to show prom goers that they are special, from the inside out.

“I like to think that our guest walk away knowing just how beautiful they are. They were made in the image of God.  And just how loved they are”, said Foxx.

And on the dance floor, folks were getting their groove on.

At the end of the night, smiles were wall to wall at Grace Fellowship and another successful joy prom was in the books.
