The Riley Cancer Center family Prom is May 4th, where Riley Kids can dress up and get away from being a sick kid. Riley kids in attendance are being treated for cancer at Riley Hospital for Children, with a diagnosis within the past three years. Even some Riley kids who are currently hospitalized at Riley for their treatment come for the evening. About 350 people will be in attendance, representing over 100 families.

The entire family celebrates the fun evening, giving the family a break from hospital visits and medical procedures. Before the event, families go to Promingdales, where an area within Riley Hospital is transformed into an extravagant boutique leading up to prom night. Families choose complimentary gowns, tuxedos, shoes and accessories provided by sponsors and donors. Fittings for prom gowns and tuxedos are included!

On the day of the prom, Riley families can take part in Riley Day Spa, where prom attendees and family members receive hairstyling, make-up and pampering before heading off to the prom!

This year's Riley Cancer Center Family Prom is May 4th held at Fairbanks Hall.
