This event is really what started it all for Emily. This special night was by far her greatest accomplishment: the first annual Roswell Park Prom for teen cancer patients and survivors at the Hotel at the Lafayette.
Teens from Rochester to Buffalo enjoyed a magical night on the red carpet, starting with getting their hair done by local stylists and makeup done by Sephora associates, a limo ride from the hospital to the venue, and an evening filled with dancing, caricature artists, a candy bar, a photo booth, and lots of laughs!
Emily brought together an awesome committee of people to help secure every moving part of this gorgeous event. She worked closely with the venue, the DJ, the event day volunteers, and each vender to ensure that every single part of this day was perfect for the incredible and deserving guests who would enjoy it.
Additionally, she planned logistics for a ‘parent happy hour’ happening at the same time as the prom, so that caregivers could stay nearby, and take a load off themselves.
The prom has become an annual event, and Emily is proud to be on the planning committee.
