After a parent posted to Facebook the idea to send the class to prom, donations came pouring in to help fund their prom attire, dinner and transportation for the evening.
"There's no words for this. This is a blessing and a dream come true," said Pam Smith, a proud parent of her special-needs son.
"[I want him] to know that, he doesn't have to be excluded, he is the same just as everyone else, really," said parent Ebony Sneed.
As the limo drove out of the Washington Yacht and Country Club, community members and loved ones sent off the prom participants with signs and sparklers.
