Each prom includes things like a red carpet entrance with “paparazzi,” limousine rides, hair and makeup beauty stations, shoe shines, dance floor, karaoke, dinner and lots more. Every special guest is assigned a “buddy” who escorts them at the prom. At the end of the evening each special needs participant is crowned a King or a Queen as they celebrate the value of life and God’s love.

Rock the Red Kettle is an annual event the Salvation Army (TSA) does to raise awareness and funds for the work they do. They’re involved with things like helping veterans, working in prisons, fighting human trafficking, homeless services, youth camps and disaster relief.

It was great to interview up and coming stars who have a passion for wanting to make a difference and supporting organizations like TSA.
