Spread the news! Get the word out to deserving chronically-ill teens! Just because you maybe homebound or frequently hospitalized – missing alot of school – does not mean you should miss a traditional teen high school experience like Prom!
BIG thank you to all our volunteers who are contacting us to help. Especially big thank you to Lori Allen who has graciously volunteered to co-chair this event with Mik. As well as Aunt Ronda who is helping to co co chair the event (don’t judge my writing skills! Ha!) Momma Bear Keri will be working behind the scenes. Mik has been quietly working on ideas since the LAST prom. Can’t wait for y’all to see all their hardwork!
Who is Mik’s Hidden Hearts Alliance Anti-Prom for?
Any high school age teen who lives with a life-changing debilitating chronic illness like Dysautonomia and other hidden illnesses. (Not just for Juniors and Seniors!) Also, we love our college age mentors who was a hidden teen to attend as well. Contact us for details.
Why is it called “Anti-PROM”? Because we think humor is the best medicine and kindly tease that our chronically-ill teens like to do everything backwards (in Mik’s case, dysautonomia likes to put Mik’s autonomic nervous system on hiatus), it is called Anti-PROM because it is the opposite of the “typical prom”. No high school drama. Great music, but no dancing (due to physical limitations of some of our hidden teens). Casino night with tons of prizes. We are a group of includers – not excluders. Do not know anyone at MHHA? We have so much fun at Anti-PROM, I promise you will leave with friends!
Where is this being held at? At Maggiano’s in Houston, Texas. Coming from out of town? Message us and we will help direct you to some area hotels.
How can I help?
We need prizes for each of our guest attendees! Yes, we want EACH hidden teen to go home with fun prizes!! Items can include: themed gift baskets, gift certificates, individual gift items, etc. We also need a GRAND PRIZE. We are also working on Swag Bags for each guest. Have something to give? Or you have a business you would like to promote and can give from 1 – 125 items? Please message us at email@example.com.
We also need financial donations. Thanks to our Boo Bash sponsors from October, we have all our basic costs for the Anti-PROM covered. However, we want to go much bigger for these deserving teens than just “basic”. Your financial donation will help this dream come become a reality.
Volunteer: We will be hosting a casino game night for our Anti-Prom hidden teens. Know how to deal? Or can you help with setup / clean? Want to collect donation prizes for us? Whatever you can do, we would appreciate it!
