It was a special night for those with special needs Saturday.
Western Avenue Baptist Church in Statesville held its third annual joy prom – the theme: out of this world. Participants arrived and were paired with a host or hostess for the evening if they didn’t have their own date.
Ladies were treated to make-up, guys to shoe shines before horse drawn carriages took the guests to the red carpet. Guests were welcomed individually and walked the red carpet as supporters cheered them on. Participants and their dates enjoyed a night of dancing in a space-themed ballroom.
