Couple Plans Memorable Prom Night - Northern Michigan's News Leader

Couple Plans Memorable Prom Night

Posted: Updated:

One Northern Michigan couple needs the community's support as they plan a memorable prom night for people with special needs in the area.

Keith Kleinert and his wife thought of the idea years ago while teaching special education.

Kleinert organized the first prom night with his own equipment using a laptop, car stereo speakers, and whatever he could find.

He says many in the area never had the chance to attend prom and they need your help to make it feel as real as possible.

"We had about 109 people last year. This year we expect about 200. They want dresses. They want tiaras; they're really excited," explains Keith.

The prom's location moves around the region every other year.

This year's event will be held in Cadillac.
