Palm Beach State College to Co-Host Annual Blue Carpet Celebration

This Event is a Celebration to Recognize the Ability in Our Community
 
Feb. 25, 2013 - PRLog -- Palm Beach State College and the TLC Mobility Foundation will host the Blue Carpet Celebration on Monday, April 22 from 6 to 9 p.m. at Palm Beach State College Boca Raton campus at the Countess de Hoernle Humanities & Technology Building. This event will celebrate and recognize the ability of people with disabilities.

From the flashing lights of cameras, to of course, a walk, roll or stroll down the “blue carpet”, this will be a truly memorable evening! Attendees will enjoy star treatment complete with hors d'oeuvres, music, raffle prizes, and exhibitors.

Two Lucky High School Seniors will be Awarded Free Prom Giveaways

The event, which is a part of TLC Mobility Foundation’s PROMability initiative, will highlight and award two graduating high school seniors with disabilities from Palm Beach, Broward and/or Miami/Dade County, public, private, or home school the ultimate prom giveaway. This includes prom night limousine service, prom attire, hair styling, make-up, prom tickets, electronics, and a one-on-one mentor lunch as they prepare to transition to adulthood − all of this made possible by the PROMability sponsors and supporters.

This blue carpet event is geared to support the ongoing commitment and efforts of TLC Mobility Foundation to promote the inclusion of children and adults with disabilities into work, home, and community life by building a "make-a-wish" of transportation. No matter what, you will enjoy a great company of guest to mix and mingle for a great cause!

Palm Beach State College offers students help to succeed inside and outside of the classroom. They have Career Centers to help students identify their career interests, develop a resume and launch their job search; Academic Advisors to guide students toward their career goals; Disability Support Services to provide assistance to ensure that students with documented disabilities have full access to all programs and services; and Student Learning Centers that offer one-on-one tutoring as well as many other services.

“Recognizing that each student is unique with diverse needs and goals, we strive to maintain small class sizes and offer programs to develop the whole student, including ethics, leadership and community service opportunities. Our faculty members represent some of the best educators in their programs of study, and they are dedicated to challenging our students and helping them achieve their dreams”, said Dr. Bernadette Russell, Provost of Palm Beach State College’s Boca Raton campus.
