Local high school students and businesses in the Springfield and Kingstowne areas are collaborating to create a special event for students with intellectual disabilities and autism from the Key Center School. A day prom will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday at the Waterford in Springfield.
Keith Clark, the sponsor for the event and the founder and president/CEO of Waterford, along with award-winning Waterford Executive Chef Rogers have designed and produced the event for the students with food and beverages, music and beautiful decor all in a ballroom environment filled with sparkling chandeliers and gorgeous fountains. As sponsors, the Waterford is also covering 80 percent of the cost for the event.
About 20 students from Lee High School will also attend the event provide support and celebrate with the Key Center School students. Students with the cosmetology program at Edison High School will also be there before the event to do hair and makeup.
The Key Center School serves students in Fairfax County and surrounding areas who have intellectual disabilities and autism. The school has scheduled about eight buses to help transport the students to the Waterford for the event.
