Pooch Hall and his family are finding every way to give back to the community. The actor and his crew will present the second annual Special Needs Family Prom. The event will be held in North Hollywood, and have a ‘Wizard of Oz’ theme.
Attendees will know that they are entering a magical place before walking into the Le Foyer Ballroom on Laurel Canyon. Djanai’s Angels, the foundation hosting the event, plans to have yellow brick road carpet for guests to take pictures on, as well as games centered around characters in the classical story. Attendees are destined to enjoy Munchkin Land while pinning the heart on the Tin Man.
A number of local children battling with cerebral palsy have also been invited to attend the mystical evening. “We are super excited about this year’s Special Needs Family Prom,” says Djanai’s Angels Founder Linda Hall. “My 17-year-old daughter, Djanai, who lives with cerebral palsy has picked out her dress and dancing shoes and is ready to stroll on down the yellow brick road.”
For a number of years the Djanai’s Angels foundation has sought ways to improve the lives of those battling with cerebral palsy through fun activities. More than 8,000 babies and infants in the United States are diagnosed with the disease every year, and several hundred children and adults show signs of the condition. Not only does Djanai’s Angels seek to spread awareness about cerebral palsy to the general public but it also aims to encourage those living with the disease to enjoy life.
Octavious Johnson and Kerris Dorsey will host this year’s Special Needs Family Prom. Proceeds from the event will benefit inClusion Clubhouse. Djanai is one of three kids that Pooch and wife Linda Hall parent.
