Starry Night Prom is a semi-formal prom for people with disabilities in the Twin Cities community that happens annually on the first Saturday in May. Hosted by DeLaSalle High School’s Lasallian Ministry, the event is free and open to the public. The students who host this prom prepare by attending seminars and sensitivity training as well as planning the food service and festive decorations that transform the gymnasium into a beautiful dance hall. The event has drawn more than 1,400 guests in each of the last two years. For more information, please contact Peg Hodapp at 612.676.7611.
