‘Casino Royale’ theme for semi-formal prom
hosted for teen patients served by the Center
What: ‘Casino Royale’ Children’s Cancer Center Teen Prom
Date: Friday, June 13th
Time: 5:30PM – 9:00PM
Location: Holiday Inn Tampa Westshore
While most of us have fond and funny memories of our school proms, not every teen enjoys that same privilege. For children battling cancer or life threatening blood disorders, attending your school prom just may not be possible due to treatment, illness or more.
Oftentimes these children just don’t feel comfortable attending a prom, self-conscious about their physical appearance as a result of their treatments.
So High Hopes in High Heels, a local philanthropic group of business women across Tampa Bay, is hosting a very special teen prom exclusively for the patients served by the Children’s Cancer Center.
Says Rachel Luis, President/Co-Founder of High Hopes in High Heels, “This will be the third year High Hopes in High Heels has hosted a dance for the CCC and this year, we are focusing on the teen population by hosting prom. High Hopes loves coordinating this annual event as it gives a chance for the children the CCC serves to enjoy a worry-free night of dancing, music and lots of smiles! I can honestly say that our members leave the dance with full hearts and beautiful memories that they will cherish forever.”

About the Children’s Cancer Center
While other organizations are committed to finding a cure tomorrow, the Children’s Cancer Center is committed to helping families cope today. Founded in 1974, the mission of the Children’s Cancer Center’s revolves around the understanding that a child’s diagnosis becomes the entire family’s diagnosis. Support is therefore offered to all members of the family throughout this difficult journey – from diagnosis through treatment and beyond. Programs fall into one of three main areas of support: emotional, educational or financial. Here, kids and families are offered hope and can learn to cope together, as a strong family unit.
