The event will be held on Saturday, April 24th. The prom will get started at 8:00 p.m. and run until 11:00 p.m. There will also be a prom king and queen crowned.

The group saw it as a opportunity to lift spirits with so many kids missing out that special night.

“To provide the virtual prom and music, I think it kind of takes your mind away from everything,”said Coast 97.3 DJ Bigg B. “You get to dress up a little bit, dance, and see your friends. I think that’s going to be a big thing for them.”
