ATASCADERO — On June 8, the Colony Park Community Center will be filled with retro-themed decorations, a DJ playing the golden oldies and a building full of adults with intellectual and developmental delays for an all-inclusive 70’s themed prom. The idea for this all-inclusive event comes from a life-long dream of Elizabeth Denny, founder of The Positive Change Movement. The Positive Change Movement is a grassroots charity which connects people with volunteer opportunities, service projects, and various ways to spread positivity in the community. We are inviting all adults with a disability to join in their best 70’s or formal attire and to dance the night away! There will be a DJ, photographers, snacks, and more.
The prom is free and is open to all adults over the age of 18 who have a diagnosis of an intellectual or developmental delay. The event will begin promptly at 6 p.m. and doors will be closed at 9 p.m. All individuals must have their own transportation to and from the event. Support staff are welcome to join, if needed. RSVP’s are required and can be done by contacting Elizabeth Denny at [email protected] or 805-704-3198.
