Detroit’s chapter of national organization, Wish Upon a Teen, and Mojo in the Morning of Detroit’s Channel 95.5, have joined together to present Mojo’s Wish Upon a Prom. 2017 marks the fifth annual year of prom.
“Prom is considered a rite of passage and milestone many teens look forward to,” said Wish Upon a Teen Executive Director Nancy Sovran. “It’s a chance for them to have a day where they can feel like celebrities as they dress up, have their picture taken and spend the night having fun with their friends. Every teen who wants to go to prom should be able to share this magical evening with their family and friends.”
This event, which is expected to host 150 teens this year, is specifically for teens with medical conditions that make it difficult or even impossible for them to attend the prom held at their schools.
“Everyone knows teenage years are filled with anxieties related to self-esteem and body-image,” said Wish Upon a Teen Founder and President Michelle Soto. “For five years now, we’ve hosted an annual teen prom complete with hair and makeup artists, decorations, a photo booth, dinner, music, glamorous attire and so much more.”
The Mojo in the Morning Show heard about Wish Upon a Teen’s fifth annual prom this year and agreed to be the official media partner. “We are so excited to be part of such a fabulous event and have been wanting to do something like this for a long time, so it made complete sense to partner with Wish Upon a Teen,” said a producer for Mojo in the Morning. Other sponsors of prom include: the presenting sponsor, The DMC Children’s Hospital, as well as Emagine Entertainment, Beaumont Health, Jane Cosmetics, Glam4Good and many more.
