A magical night spent “Under The Sea”

dfkdcprom-001

2016 DFKDC Prom: “Under the Sea”. What a fun night! It was great to see all the Dreams for Kids DC participants, friends, families, and volunteers enjoy themselves in what may typically be a tricky social situation.

Both Jake and Sofia enjoyed being on the dance floor thanks to Pelonkey‘s DJ Neekola and her great beats! I enjoyed seeing the smiles, especially on the faces of the ‪#‎DFKDC‬ participants.

I am appreciative beyond words can adequately express how thankful I am for the Dreams for Kids organization serving the DMV under the leadership of the amazing Glenda Fu and her “All Hands On Deck” board members. They allow me to witness things that I would have never imagined possible when Jake was diagnosed with Autism. 

I am equally grateful that DFKDC routinely includes siblings in their activities … I think this participation is a great way to grow the next generation of disability/special needs advocates … and just all around good people!

Thank you to all the sponsors: On The Edge CF, Michael & Son Services, Pelonkey, Washington DCJCC, and Rob & Paige Robertory! Thank you to Tom Prather / The Blue Wave Media + Strategy, Heather Mahoney /Haute Haus Agency, and Snapshot Moments Photobooth, LLC for photography/video!
