It wouldn’t be prom season without Pooch Hall and wife Linda hosting their annual special needs prom. The celebrity couple’s charity, InClusion ClubHouse, partnered with Global Gift Foundation USA to deliver the elegant two-tiered event at Lowes Hollywood Hotel this past Saturday.
The Aladdin Themed Special Needs Prom allowed attendees to experience a level of adventure not usually perpetuated at prom dances. Pooch and Linda’s annual charity event was held during the afternoon so attendees were served lunch and invited to dance to the beats of a DJ hired especially for the occasion.
InClusion ClubHouse and its special needs prom are dear to Linda and Pooch Hall’s heart. The couple’s oldest child, Djanai, lives with cerebral palsy. “I want my daughter to have as much normalcy as possible,” Pooch told media in February.
“And other[special needs] parents, who really wish they can have this for their daughter, or son, where they experience and exercise their normalcy in the world that we live in. … It’s real work.”
Pooch further explained, “I think I’m mostly excited about her being equal and her being like, ‘You know what, I’m equal.’ My daughter, Djanai, is not looking at herself as I’m different. She will go, ‘Okay, I’m part of this world and I am equal.’ She’s not looking at [it] as far as I can’t walk or talk. My daughter is super fun, super dope.”
Linda and Pooch Hall have three children together.
