Under the Big Top

Kids’ prom honors cancer patient



Spoor said she’s gotten help from several people in the community, including several high school students.

“Two Brownsburg High School students, Mackenzie Cheney and Brady Smith, are helping us as part of their senior project,” she said. “They’re collecting donations for the silent auction.”

There’s also a group of students from Ben Davis University High School that have volunteered to help.

“They caught wind (of the party) and volunteered to help run some of the stations during the event,” Spoor said.

Fanchon Stinger, a news anchor from FOX 59, will be serving as the emcee for the event. There will also be appearances by Purdue football players and the Indy 500 festival queen.

“Our celebrities will be doing things like leading the ‘Chicken Dance,’” she said. “Mayor Ballard said he was going to try to make an appearance, but it’s not confirmed yet. I sure hope he does. The kids may not know who he is, but the adults will get a kick out of it.”

Participants are asked to come in semi-formal attire.

“Aiden wants to rent a tux,” Spoor said. “I told him that was a but much.”

Under the Big Top Kids’ Prom will run from 5 to 10 p.m. Feb. 2 at the Wyndham Indianapolis West. Tickets must be purchased by Jan. 28.

The cost of the Under the Big Top Kids’ Prom is $15 for children and $30 for adults. For more information on tickets, visit the “Pray for Aiden” Facebook page or a website walled http://kidsprom.eventbright.com/.

Organizers are also still looking for sponsors and items for the silent auction. To help with those items, visit the Facebook page at www.facebook.com/PrayForAiden and leave a message.

Funds raised will go to support Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at St. Vincent.
