Teenaged Dream For Child in Foster Care

Prom is made to be one of those magical nights a person never forgets. Girls spend weeks finding the perfect dress and guys build up the courage to ask their dream date. The night comes and parents and friends gather around to take pictures and then couples are off to create their perfect prom night.

Now here at Together We Rise, we heard about a young gentleman who happened to be in the foster care but still wanted to enjoy the night that every high school student should.  Now playing fairy godmother is what we do best, so we called on some friends from 3 Kings Limo and requested a limo to pick up him, his date, his friend, and his friend’s date to take them to prom in style.

Now, none of the kids were aware of the limousine picking them up. So after they enjoyed their dinner and walked outside to get into their staff member’s car, they spotted the limo. The staff member told the kids they should ask the driver if they could take pictures inside.  The kids walked over and the driver agreed to let them take pictures. They climbed into the limo and then the driver shut the doors and a few seconds later they were driving off to prom. The kids were so surprised and excited they did not realize what was going on, it took them a few minutes to realize the limo was for them. Thank you 3 Kings Limo for giving them a fairy tale entrance to every teenager's dream night. 

Foster youth don’t always get to live the glamorous life so when we got the chance to give a little sparkle to an important night we were honored.  We believe that where you come from doesn’t determine where you’re going. Hopefully the limo will not be the only glamorous thing these kids experience.
