It may have been a warm May evening outside, but inside the Atlanta Zone it was a glittering Winter Wonderland as patients celebrated the 5th Annual Zone Prom. The Zone staff and volunteers spent two days decorating every inch of the space, filling it with snow-capped trees, twinkling icicles, and wintery magic!

The Zone Prom has become a cherished tradition for every teen who attends. One teen shared that she did not feel comfortable going to her own high school prom, but she couldn’t wait to come to the Zone Prom to reconnect with her friends from camp or past hospitalizations. All of the youth who attended had a fantastic time dancing the night away under the wintery stars and posing in multiple photo booths. Everything about the night was perfect except for the end, when the kids had to leave. Many of them exchanged social media contacts and will surely keep in touch all year until Prom 2019!
