They had a prom dress donation drive in March, and a church member offered to cover tuxedo rentals from Men's Warehouse, so the 110 attendees didn't have to spend a dime. "This was our first one, and it was unbelievable," organizer Ashley Parks told ABCNews.com. Parks said one parent sent a heartfelt note thanking her for loving her children "as much as God loves them." "We all cried over it," she said. "It was one of many." But what made the Joy Prom different was that it allowed people 16 and up to attend. She said a couple with disabilities in their 60s went to Joy Prom because they never got to go to one when they were in high school.
