Each spring, DeLaSalle students involved in Lasallian Ministry host the Starry Night Prom for persons living with disabilities. Over 600 guests attend this formal gala evening of food, beverages, and (of course!) dancing -- all free of charge.
The students who host this prom prepare for half the school year by attending seminars and sensitivity training as well as planning the food service and festive decorations that transform the gymnasium into a beautiful dance hall.
