Teens with visual impairment celebrate prom with unforgettable night

For teens participating in programs offered by Lighthouse for the Visually Impaired and Blind on May 21, this year’s prom was another unforgettable night of limousine rides and dancing with peers all over the state.

The prom was shared with four other participating agencies. Teens traveled from Lake and Sumter counties, and The Villages, who are part of New Vision for Independence; Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte, Desoto, and Highlands counties, as part of Lighthouse Vision Loss Education Center; and Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River, and Okeechobee counties from Lighthouse for the Blind of the Palm Beaches.

Later in the evening, teens applauded the new Prom King and Queen. King Levi came from Lighthouse Vision Loss Education Center and Queen Jenna from Lighthouse for the Blind of the Palm Beaches.
