We made lemonade! That’s right! Memphis Joy Prom made lemonade out of lemons. Sometimes life gives you lemons, but we made something sweet instead. 

The Memphis Joy Prom team said it was not an option to cancel prom for our friends with special needs. In fact, we would move forward and bring JOY to those who were in their homes by hosting a house party on Facebook LIVE on April 17 where the entire community was invited. 

This night did not disappoint either. We enjoyed music, good food and fellowship while being physically apart but not spiritually or virtually. God provided a way for us to celebrate and enjoy this night with our friends. Memphis Joy Prom 2020 will be a night to remember that actually brought us closer and made us stronger! 

We asked parents and caregivers to send us pictures of how they celebrated. The pictures were further confirmation that this night was special, and those involved made the best out of the most difficult of times! 

View some of the pictures we received below, and watch the Memphis Joy Prom House Party 2020 here.
