Friday, May 21st was “A Night to Remember” at Krause Children’s Center in Katy. And that just happened to be the theme for what was hands-down the best prom ever held at Krause. It could have been the best prom in Katy―or in Texas, for all we know…
Thanks to the Katy Chamber of Commerce for going all out to make the evening extra special. Under the leadership of Ann Hodge, they were the instigators of the “prom dress flood” that made pre-prom almost as exciting as the actual event. Thanks to the MANY volunteers who devoted their time and hearts to everything from making alterations to creating beautiful hairdos. Thanks to the Krause staff who chaperoned, helped set up, and filled in where needed – all labors of love on their own time.
There were food stations in abundance. There was a six-tier chocolate fountain with possibly the world’s biggest strawberries. There was music that made it impossible for anyone and everyone to keep their feet still. There was a red carpet, befitting royalty and residents alike. There were decorations that transformed the gymnasium into a sparkling, star-filled night club.
Tawana Goodwin, Krause director of volunteer services, is still reeling from the overwhelming response from the community. Tawana summed it up: “We are all still talking and smiling about ‘THE BEST PROM EVER’ at Krause! Special thanks to the Katy Chamber of Commerce, our sponsors, the donors, volunteers, barbers, make-up artist, florist, decorators, salon stylist, and the COMMUNITY that donated 603 dresses to start the Krause Prom Closet.”
