While attending a bible class at his parish, perhaps 10 years ago, a good friend asked if he would like to help at a Prom event for Special Needs Kids at the Hacienda Hotel in El Segundo. He did, not knowing what that really was. While serving food he became fascinated by the joy in the air, the decorations, the dancing, the entertainment and the kids and their parents. When asked again the following year, he attended the Prom again and was directed to be the greeter at the door. That actually did it. He had so much fun and learned how much he loved the kids and liked to interact with them. The next thing he knew he was on the Board of Directors and began attending dances and meetings of the board. He does not know how that happened, but he knows he loves the kids and that he is grateful for our precious children of God and those who love and care for them.
