The Health Association of Niagara County Inc. reports the recent 2016 HANCI Senior Prom was a "historical success," with more than 375 seniors and students participating in the signature event.
The HANCI Senior Prom is an intergenerational event that pairs a high school student with a senior citizen "date" for a day of dinner, dancing, music and fun. This year's disco-themed event took place on Oct. 16 at Antonio's Banquet & Conference Center, 7708 Niagara Falls Blvd., Niagara Falls.
Pictured, students and seniors united on the dance floor for the "YMCA" song.
Participating schools from across Western New York included Buffalo Academy of the Sacred Heart, Buffalo Seminary, Canisius High School, Cardinal O'Hara High School, Grand Island High School, Lewiston-Porter High School, Mount St. Mary's Academy, Nardin Academy, Niagara Catholic High School, Niagara Falls High School and Niagara-Wheatfield High School.
The HANCI Senior Prom was created to break down barriers between generations and teach students the importance of community, while enhancing the lives of seniors.
